You'll totally squash the o-ring and it won't have a good seal. Should only make it hand-tight + 1/2 turn IMO. Could also get a wad of paper towel and tape it over it as well to prevent anything from leaking onto your components.
Absolutely correct. Never, ever screw a barb or cap very tight when an o'ring is used to seal. Doing so will only deform the o'ring, and leaks will start.

I never had the top cap leak on all the micro-res I've used.
