I had an SRAM chain that would squeak like crazy and no matter what lube I used after about 15 miles the squeak was back every time. It was only a couple links, and it was a tandem timing chain. The chain itself wasn't manufactured particularly well, there were tooling marks all over the rollers and end plates. Nasty...
I tossed the sram and put a shimano chain in place and it's been quiet ever since.
The moral from my story, is that it's not always the lube...
