Exclamation Attention all Tuniq tower 120 owners!

This question has been debated much over many forums and especially the newegg user review area ( yes I know how bad that area is but they have a point ). All versions of the tuniq tower come with the golden mounting screws but the problem is there not 1 piece and actually 2 piece construction in that the stem and the head are seperate. The problem with this is that they usually pop off when overtigtened and i was wondering anyone who has successfully installed their tuniq tower, how much did they tigthen their tuniq tower? I know its supposed to be tight, but if I tighten it to the point where the heads pop off, then I'm really in a bang.

You can use super glue to glue the pieces together if they pop off.

Oh wow, I would probably have to remember to not over-tighten the screws when I can get a hold of the Tuniq Tower 120 (who knows when I can get one..).

petra tech is the place I would recommend for both getting a tuniq tower and MX-2 ( you wont have to pay shipping on one if you get em both ). They sell em for low prices too!....heck it sounds like I work for em :P they even write you a personal hand written note, mine said "MX-1 great stuff!"
