I don't know if this is a stupid question, but am I just supposed to break off the metals pieces behind the normal 5.25" bays?

Maybe it was cheaper than plastic or something of that sort, no idea.

in the past i have used them to mount 120mm fans as intake and have seen many others do the same, i think that is why they are left there

Break it gently. and send it back to coolermaster if haf x ever burn ur motherboard seriously.
make sure to removed ur top panel and check all ur front panel cable/wiring for flow/issue. i did and found out 2 of the wiring(sleeve) has big hole/look like its been pinch hard someone did a rush job and didnt bother to show it to quality assurance those damage/issue can cause a shortage. glad i check or i end up burning my board Again. just like last time didnt know it was haf x fault. anyway its for ur own safety just double check it.

They are part of the front panel when its is made they stamp out so they can be removed. I believe the leave them there to help block emf noise from inside the case getting out or from emf noise to get into the case.
