I have a bit of a dilemma. My case, has integrated, raised standoffs, first off, the case comes with seperate standoffs so should I be using the built in bumps?. The problem is that it some of the standoffs don't match up with the motherboard. My mother board is a ASUS M5A97 R2.0 which is an ATX, my case is also ATX.
Also, there is a center post that is installed which slides through one of the center screw holes of the motherboard, should I use this to help guide me and then unscrew it after?
The raised standoffs meet in the 5 mounting positions of the motherboard and a screw, which i can remove, through the middle mounting point, but there are 3 extra standoffs that are built in and raised. These are touching the back of the motherboard where no mounting points exist. Should I push them don't / bend them back?
It is too high if I put standoffs on the raised standoff bits, doesn't match up with the i/o shield. Everything looks find apart from there are only six mounting points on my mainboard and 3 of the built in standoffs are touching the back of the mainboard. Because they are built in I can't remove them.
So those mounting points are legit standoffs? also, in the middle mounting point is a screw which is used to help mount it I guess. Should I remove the screw and insert the standoff that came with the case?
