Do I need to use motherboard standoffs?

I've always used them with my builds, but this case I bought has raised bumps, and I was wondering if they were meant to be standoffs.

  1. Typically with raised bumps like that, those do act as your standoffs so you shouldn't need additional ones.
  2. If there is enough clearance and the back panel lines up, no standoffs... I would think you need them as most cases have spaces for different layouts. ATX mATX etc.

    I went with no standoffs, and it's a mATX only case

    If your case has raised bumps "mounds" you don't need standoffs with those mounds. Just be sure the backplate is square on all four corners and all the extra sheetmetal is broken off for the ports you need.
