I'm afraid I've never seen anything like that no, you are probably going to have to mod it up :-)

That doesn't help with his clearance issue though :)

Think he might mean NO side panel at all. Go naked! And give the world a complete view. Lol. Looks like a one inch lexan/alum spacer plate or new heat sink. Thanks folks!

Yeah, that doesn't help airflow at all though :) 
Glad to help man,

I meant instead of extending the side of the case, cut a hole out of the side panel, so the heatsink sticks out a little. The fan can then pull air in from the outside
