Default TuniqTower 120 ?

For anyone that has a TuniqTower, how tight do u make the screws? I'm just wondering if I should loosen them up, because without a overclock when gaming, my temps get up to 50c, and I feel they should be less with that tower.

Right now I have the fsb at stock settings.

are those temps good for the tuniq tower? or do I need to change it?

PS- I have had better temps on a q6600 with a Zalman 9700 than this

It doesn't show the "edited by" message if you edit it within a certain time limit.

Make sure the fan is working right. If it is, then I would pull the heatsink off and reapply thermal paste. Just a small drop.
