Don't know what you tightened real tight, but what you need to do is loosen the stem bolts that clamp it to the steerer tube. Once that's done, you can give the allen bolt in the top cap a fraction of a turn, which should take the slack out. Don't overdo it, as too much preload will wreck your bearings. Then tighten the stem bolts again, but evenly, not one at a time. Got it?
