    When you put it back together, use blue loctite. You might not have had a screw tight enough when you first put it together. With red Loctite you cant re-tighten it. Blue you can tighten and loosen things a.nd have a good hold on the screws. Good luck to you! If you don't already have them, get a quality set of drivers. It makes tightening things a whole lot easier.

    before attempting to remove the stripped screw, heat it to whatever temp the loctite says to break the loctite so your night fighting the loctite and the stripped screw at the same time.
    +1 on quality drivers especially with use of loctite

    Not sure if you noticed whilst assembling your MIPS, but the pins that hold the whole assembly together have a flat spot which the set screw is supposed to sit on when screwed in all the way. They will not stay together if you're not using the flat spot, no matter how much loctite you use. Ask me how I know
