Installing the MSI Z87-G41: too many standoffs

I recently bought a msi z87-g41 motherboard, and looked at the mounting holes so I could be ready to install it. The motherboard is a full atx board, so I expected that it would be ready to be mounted on to 9 standoffs, but the board only has 6 holes for the standoffs. The holes are only for the two rows of standoffs closest to the i/o shield, and the third row would be under my board with no holes to go through. Do I take the third row of standoffs out and install the motherboard, or do i have to worry about the board touching the case???

It's not a very wide board. See page 1-16 of your manual.
