Quick update followed by a few questions.

I have reinforced all joists across the full span and I am now searching for flooring material and fasteners suggestions.

I have the 3/4" T&G OSB cut to size. about ready to secure but I am not sure if the #8 1 3/4" construction screws I have will be adequate (it seems like very few people use this size). It seems like the majority of people use nails+glue for cost/time savings. Can anyone recommend an appropriate screw to use?

Also, I plan on using a CBU over the plywood.
I plan on following the installation guide for hardibacker, but i don't see mentioning of avoiding or hitting joists when securing the CBU. Am I supposed to avoid the joists to allow "float"?
