By closing the side panel, you affected the airflow. With it off, there was not much flow through the case, so there was a warm spot around your HSF that kept getting recirculated through it. Put the side on, and there is now a definite path for air to come in and go out, clearing out the dead spot.

The fan RPM went up because putting the side panel on put more restrictions around it, making the airflow through the HSF lower, which meant the fan was actually doing less work, so the RPM went up (if you don't believe me, turn on a vacuum cleaner with a hose, listen to the sound, then put your hand over the end of the hose to block it - the vacuum motor will actually spin faster).

1500 rpm is normal for a stock Xigmatek fan. You can not make it go any faster, as it is a three-wire fan, therefore has no speed control wire. You can only put it on a fan controller and lower the speed.
