[CPU Air Cooler Question] bequiet! Dark Rock 3 install: C-Clip

This is a niche question, but it'd be great if somebody can help me out.

I recently purchased a bequiet! Dark Rock 3. It is missing 1 C-Clip for mounting my Intel CPU.
  • What are my options?
  • Can I substitute an O-ring from the included AMD kit for the missing C-Clip?
As far as I can tell, its only purpose is to (a) hold the mounting screw in place while installing the cooler and (b) prevent over-tightening?

let's be clear - they are obliged to help you. They aren't doing you a favor.

I would have went to the retailer and exchanged the kit rather than waited for the manufacturer to send me a missing piece.
