If you installed it correctly you should have no problems with clearance
What part of the H50 is hitting the side panel?

well, It's square so I just turn it other side and now the side panel fitting ok.

Other question is the front fan, I wanna replace it with the led fan but I have no idea how to remove that fan..

And one thing I confuse about the case, there are 3 connector that I don't know what it for. The lights of the case working good without it...

Picture below, thanks for your help

The one labeled 1394 and Azalia are exactly what they state they are. Azalia is HD Audio and 1394 is Firewire. The Azalia might also have another connector that is for standard audio.

Thank you, I forgot about those firewire and audio on my case. but where should I connect them? I didn't any port match with that on my mobo, or I just use usb port instead?

Also does anyone has this case and trying to remove the front fan? I can't find the way to replace it.

You'll need to check the motherboard manual for that. It's why they include them. It will tell you which ports are which on your board.

And no, you can't plug them into a USB port and expect them to work. In fact, it could damage the motherboard by doing so.

EDIT: The information you need is found on pages 2-2 and 2-3 of your manual.

You don't plug BOTH of the audio plugs in, only one of them. On newer boards the Azalia (or HD audio) is used. AC97 is for older boards.

The front fan is connected to a bracket. You should be able to push on a part of the bracket and slide it out. Then you have to remove the fan from the bracket by moving the tabs on the bracket out of the way and removing the fan.
