questions about 103 rejection

i have looked through some case's filewrappers, and found that a major of the applicant use the "all limitation" rule to overcome the 103 rejection.
and i want to know that the claim is non-obviousness as long as all the limitations of the claim are not taught or suggested by the reference or the combination of the reference documents?
for example, a claim claims a device comprising A, B, C and D. The examiner found two reference documents to reject the claim under 103. but we found that reference 1 discloses A, B, and C ,but not D. reference 2 dose not disclose D too, so can we get a result that the claim is non-obviousness?
i am doubted because the remarks did not mention the "movitation to combine" at all, does'nt a movitation be needed in 103 rejection?
thanks

KSR v Teleflex has changed the standards:

The Graham test controls, Teaching-Suggestion-Motivation is not the exclusive test.
 
The USPTO training materials that discuss KSR are also helpful to practitioners.

11.6 appears to relate to noncitizens attempting to become registered practitioners.
