I'm not sure of the "correct" way to tighten the screws but on mine I 
tightened them as tight as possable with one of theose small books of 
allen wrenches (pocket knife of just allen's) and tightened them untill 
they stoped, there was a little flex in either the long screw or the 
allen tool and i stope then, and that was about as tight as they were 
when i got the system. As far as the order I think i have done it in 
just about every order posable and nothing wen't wrong.  I just had a 
compression connector messed up buy the seller of my system. He handeled 
one of the node boards too much and din't know not to touch the conector.
