Studs/Wall cabnet mount

I just mounted 5 wall cabinets. The cabinets are from Home Depot (cheap), and there are only 2 particleboard slices on the back that are used to mount to studs.
So for 36"Width cabinets, I can only have 4 screws to the studs (16"OC), and 2 screws for the 18" cabinet.
Is that enough? I am going to connect the adjoinging cabinets by smaller screws.
Thanks.

You can double up those screws so you have 8 in the 36" cabinet and 4 in the 18" cabinet if you want. I put two screws through the mounting panel into the same stud, one over the other on the top panel. I don't put any in the bottom panel. I use some matching paint to hide the screw heads. What I then do is to take off the hinges on the side of the cabinet that butts up to an adjacent cabinet. Drill a countersunk hole between the two screw holes for the hinge and use a 1-1/4" screw to join the two cabinets. When you reinstall the hinges, the screw heads are hidden under the hinge.

did you ever think that the studs run up and down, so you could put screw every 16"(oc) and then 1" apart for the total height of the cabinet!

The back of the cabinet is just a 1/8" composite material with a printed wood grain that slides into grooves in the 3/4" braces across the top and bottom and then nailed to the braces and cabinet framing. The printed panel sits about 1/2" from the wall, so it cannot be nailed to the wall.

You're referring to the "Mill's Pride" line? We put up a bunch of those in our old house without any additional screws (i.e., we just used a screw through each "rail" at each stud, plus a couple of screws through each side -- hidden under the hinges -- into the adjacent cabinet), and they still seemed fine when we left more than two years later.
