GPU Backplate Spring Needed?

Reassembling the waterblock for my Vega 64 and want to know if this thing is needed. It exerts a lot of force and I am worried about cracking that big beautiful die every time I remove or install it.

Its not that much force. You shouldnt have a problem, just stop screwing when the screw wants to stop basically.
