Motherboard Standoff Question for Corsair 550D

I'm about to install my ASUS Sabertooth motherboard into my Corsair 550D case. I see that standoffs are already present on most of the contact points, but at the top of the case there are raised holes for contact points instead. They seem to be at the same height as the already present standoffs, but I'm not sure how the MB attaches at these points.

Full disclosure: my last build was 6 years ago so I'm a bit behind the times at some of this stuff.

Thanks in advance.

Normally if raised like that they accept the same fixing screws but I am sure it is explained in your manual.

Thank you both. I just had to be sure what was going on before diving in. :)

not sure why they would do 3 and the rest normal stand offs

but looking at a close up it seems they take normal stand off screws

Those three dimpled standoffs are always present in exactly the same standardized location for both full ATX and micro-ATX motherboards.

Those three permanent standoffs should already be threaded to accept the same screws that the other standoffs use.
