ASRock FM2A85X-ITX Mounting Screws Question

I recently purchased an ASRock FM2A85X-ITX FM2 AMD A85X from here, and its going into a COOLER MASTER Elite 120 Mini-ITX case here.

My question is very nooby and I've built two PCs prior to this, though, this is my first ITX. Four standoffs came with the case, but no 'specific' screws. All of the screws are black and different sizes, and I decided to use some screws from my COOLER MASTER Storm Scout case. I'm starting to think this wasn't such a good idea, but I have yet to complete the build.

The motherboard is in the case screwed down with the screws from the other case, but I haven't connected my PSU to anything, yet.

Will I be okay if I use these screws or should I try to figure out which is which in the bag of unlabeled, uncolor screws.

Thanks for bearing with my noobiness.

    AS mentioned, just be sure they fit the standoffs, generally think ther are about 6/32nds screws and typicall go with the ones with the slightly raised rounded over heads
