help putting in mobo only 3 case standoffs?

post #1 of 10
Thread Starter 
I just got my Thermaltake sopranoRs 101 in the mail and im putting a 680i into it. But when I opened the box that the case came in the bag with the screws was opened and I only found 3 case standoffs but there are little raised holes on the case (just like little bubles) and some non raised holes am I supposed to just screw into the raised holes and use the standoffs for the other ones that arnt raised??

\\This is the first build ive done with a case that dosent use the crappy plasitc thingys

Edit: Im guessing thats what u do cause using the standoffs on the raised things would bring the IO ports above the shield making that awkward lol. But im afraid of killing the mobo. I dont wanna electrocute it

The raised (bump) spots are like standoff's already bent into the mobo panel. They should be the same height as the standoffs you have. Can you grab a pic of the mobo panel?

Didn't they stop using the plastic standoffs in 1992 or something? Or are you talking about something else?

If it looks like the above picture, yea. You just screw the mobo onto those "bumps" and then use the other standoffs to screwin where you need extra support.
