    What Aaron121 said. The bumps are the stand-offs, which is a giant, grounded slab of brass.
    There is a central stud/pseudo-stand-off to help you line up your motherboard.

    I'm using a 300R at the moment, and I was kind of shocked to discover that as well.

    This, set me back too. Although that standoff that helps align the mobo is a life-saver. Was having a lot of trouble before I noticed it, then I had it down in seconds haha,
