Of course setting the correct torque also involves clean threads. There is no good reason 'not' to use an adequate torque wrench. Does not mean spending $200-400 for one that you want to have calibrated every 6 months, or when you accidentally drop it. Most of the ones mentioned will suffice for the weekend or shade tree mechanic.
Even if you used one with a pointer and not a clicker, you would certainly get more reliable and accurate results then 'snug' or 'just tight enough'.
The partial turn past finger tight worked most of time with cast iron blocks and heads but those days are mostly over.
