Motherboard mounting screws come with the case, not the motherboard. Looks like yours have labels.

You first need to screw in the standoff screws. These are hex shaped,about a cm high, and usually brass colored. Put one in where the holes in the motherboard match up with the places in the case. There are usually 9 of them for an ATX motherboard.

From your case parts kit, test the screws first to see that they fit the standoffs properly. They will have a small hex head and a washer like look. If you use a screw that is too wide, it may short out by touching metal close to the mounting hole.
