If you mean regarding the block reassembly? I just do it by hand being careful not to overtighten them, approximating the torque I needed to remove them. I didn't have any leaks or cracks in the acrylic of any of my blocks so far. I should probably get the right tool for it for the long term. I don't know the numbers.
Actually I had a crack on mine. The V shaped screws are not welcome on the block edges. I haven't touched the block and put it on without any checking after the purchase, after a year a so I moved to a new PC case and redid my loop and noticed a crack developing. On the newer models they do not use V shaped grooves anymore and use normal screws. I guess they learned it the hard way also.
Long story short, they sent me a new block, all fine with EK support, now I put washers a top. But the story is, I've asked for the torque pressure settings that are not mentioned anywhere. Those are 0.6Nm-0.8Nm and that's rather tight. Keep a note on that, if you have a dyno screwdriver use it, replace the screws and put some washers.
It might be you really lack pressure on the VRM parts also.
