I recently bought a Samsung 970 EVO Plus M.2 1TB SSD and found out that the store that assembled my PC a couple years back didn't provide the screw bag that came with the motherboard box. (Probably thinking I wouldn't dare to open my case due to warranty)
I looked up online and saw that the manual says the m.2 screw is a 3.2L screw and was wondering if this kit I found online with 3L screws would be good: https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B086WTZ5VZ/ref=ppx_yo_dt_b_asin_title_o01_s00?ie=UTF8&psc=1
My MOBO is an Asus Prime B450M-A.
Other screw kit options are welcome.

Yes, those will work. If the standoff is not installed, install that first from the kit, then the screw. It appears to have several type threads for the standoffs, just choose the one that easily screws into your board and just finger tighten it, the screws will work with any of the included standoffs.
