That's part of the rear I/O plate and is not lined up for the motherboard, that tab is support to outside of the UBS but right now it inside and possibly even causing it to shirt out. The proper way to fix it is to remove the motherboard and then install it so that the tab is not inside the port but on its outside where it's suppose to be.

There's also a chance you can just push on the panel from the inside of the case enough so that the tab pops out of the slot and then it can be bent back into place.

Oh I see the first proper method you said seems like it'll require taking everything out including the graphics card to readjust the motherboard. so like a fresh install.
Not sure if I'm willing to do that just might live with it lol
ill try the second way you said and see if it'll work though doesn't seem like a lot of room too
Thank you for your reply though much appreciated :]

Not really a fresh install, you are just fixing the motherboard placement. It won't affect your software. I'd be worried that a short cut damage your motherboard.

Yeah good point by that I just mean't have to take everything out to adjust the motherboard, by adjust you mean I would have too unscrew it right, like I can't wiggle it to perfection right haha
ill plan to do it soon :)

Well you might be able to push into its right place by trying what I posted above in my second post.
