I know it will be different for every PC case, etc, but in general, it should come with 9 right? because thats how much you would need?

But mine comes with 4, according to the manual. Am I missing something here?

I do not have the PC case with me, as it is still on its way. I am basing this off the manual online.

The PC case is MSI Vampiric 100 L:

It comes with 4 x Screw #6-32 6.5mm x4 Motherboard Studs...

but it also comes with Screw M3 5mm x17 Motherboard / SSD 主機板 / SSD ...

so am I suppose to use some of that m3 screws?

Possibly the other standoff spaces are taken care of with raised nubs. To the same height as the standoffs would be.

Wait until you get it, then analyze. They're not going to sell you the case, then make you go buy more screws.
And no, you don't use the M3 screws.

Thank you! yes, they do have raised nubs......... so what would that mean? i would still need a bolt, right? to tighten the MOBO to the nubs?
