Is it safe if one motherboard hole isn't mounted on a standoff?

I'm currently doing my first computer build, but I have run into a strange problem.

the case doesn't have a hole to put a standoff in where one of the motherboard mounting holes are. That would mean all but one hole would be screwed in.

Will the computer still work if its like that?

My motherboard:
GIGABYTE GA-Z68AP-D3

My case:
Thermaltake Element G

Thanks

    One hole missing a standoff generally isn't a problem, and shouldn't affect the operation of the computer at all.
  2. hmm... I'm starting to wonder if my motherboard is even compatible with the case...

    The case says "Motherboard compatibility: Mini ATX and Full ATX"

    My motherboard says it's "ATX Form Factor - 30.5 cm x 21.5 cm"
