Those common silver wire grills aren't restrictive. If you take one and try to fan yourself with it, it doesn't move any air. The difference is probably negligible. However, it does make you feel more like a pro if you remove it...

Don't take it out if your system satisfies you as is. Unnecessary voiding of the warranty and lost EMI shielding.

If the fan guard is your only concern at this point and not the fact that the fan on these s12-500's is now ball bearing based... thats the least of your worries.

Why void a VERY nice 3 yr warranty for mere vanity? Seasonic is great when it comes to handling RMAs. Keep the fan guard and better spend the time upgrading your PC with those well deserved parts.
