Only 3 standoff screws with case?

Hi guys, my case (Thermaltake Versa H25) came with 3 standoff screws but my motherboard definitely needs more than that. I'm just a bit concerned how I'm meant to go about installing the motherboard.

There's usually a small cardboard box or plastic bag that has more standoffs that you can install. If not, call Thermaltake support and they should send you some.

If it comes down to it, you can RMA the whole case.

There are a load of humps/hills where the motherboard is placed. Are those non-conductive and do they act as standoffs?

How tall are they? If you can lay the motherboard on the existing standoffs and those "hills" are tall enough to keep the board level, then those are built-in standoffs.

Yeah it looks like they're the same height as the standoffs
