It's not as easy as just raising your motherboard. Keep in mind that PC components have to adhere to the so-called ATX standards and its variants. What this means is that components have to be designed to fit certain dimensions to ensure compatibility for each other.
This is a perfect illustration of this standard at work. Imagine you are able to raise your motherboard off of the back panel; what happens to the I/O shield locations where your peripheral component connectors are? How about the PCI/PCI-E expansion slots in the case? None of these would line up, would they?
To answer your question more directly, I don't know if higher standoffs exist to raise the motherboard off of its tray. I think that if you want to have cables beneath the motherboard, you'd have to cut into the mobo tray (or find another way to route cables so that they run beneath the motherboard). If such higher standoffs exist, I'm ignorant of where to get these.
Hope this helps!
