    Is this enough to successfully mount a motherboard? It also came with these plastic things but I can't for the life of me work out what they are. I was expecting it to come with at least 4 so the motherboard could be balanced at least.

    The little plastic things are a pain. You can buy more stand offs at a computer store, or maybe even computer repair place. They usually have tons of spare laying around.
