First i wanna say that his is my first time building a PC. I bought a new cheap case that didnt come with standoffs/risers, instead the metal backing of the case is raise shaped (bumped) where the screws would go, does this mean i can simply place the mobo into the metal backing, will anything bad happen to my mobo? fast reply pls excited to build :D

yes, sometimes the cheaper cases go that route. You board will be fine.

I have never seen a case that did not use standoffs. I have seen cases where the standoff holes where raised up.

What is your case and I can find out, but I highly doubt that a cheap case would go through the engineering effort to deisgn it to not use standoffs that cost them a few pennies per case.

Cheap and older cases did this all the time, it's starting to die away a little bit these days, but you'll be fine to screw your mobo down, just make sure they all line up and that there aren't any that don't line up. When they don't line up then they can cause shorts.

Its a kmex 3c22 , also the case came with only 1 standoff screw and the case has only 1 screw slot in the middle that isnt "bumped"
