Default motherbooard question

hey all

i got all my parts for my pc on weds should be getting my mobo later today by ups.

now for my question i got a whole bunch of standoffs and only 4 mobo scews.

these are mobo screws right just be correct.

so do i put all the standoffs that match my mobo or just 4?
i was thinking to put them all in and just screw in the 4 corners. will that be good?

-edit the screws in the picture hardly even go in the standoff but these very little screws fit perfect only thing is it doesnt have that wide look around the top like in the picture.

put more than 4 standoffs under the motherboard, even if they aren't screwed in, if you put the screws in the 4 corners, it should stabalize the motherboard enough that the ones without screws won't cause a problem...
