help with mobo screws (pics included)

So my case manual seems like its contradicting itself. Which screw do I use?

This UFO looking one?

or this donut looking one?

When the donut one is screwed in it doesn't cover up this ring of dots as seen here. While the UFO one does.

Is the screw supposed to cover that ring up or not.

I would use the ufo looking ones, are you using screws that came with the case or the mobo?

I don't think that the motherboard come with screws. Correct me if I am wrong.

yeah the consensus is to go with UFO ones. I honestly forget which screws came from where. I was working with them out of the bags they all came in but then I just decided to pour them out on my magnetic tray. I'm pretty sure they came from the case though. (HAF 912) Although in the manual it doesn't seem to show them. very odd.

Then go with the UFO ones and use the donut ones for the optical drive and maybe the hdd/ssd.
