Exotic stem cracking?

I bought an Exotic carbon bars and stem.

Carbon paste applied.
Bars say 8nm max so I'm doing 5nm and the stem is starting to split on one of the bolt holes?
Cross pattern tightening method used, not even reached 5nm at that point, doing 1/8th turns.


Guessing it's buggered?
