I had my KMC 410H (thicker sideplates, this thing is a beast) for half a year and just recently changed it to a normal KMC chain (the gold one, mmmm).
Now my bike is silent as hell, in opposed to noisy. When I'm riding and look down to assess noise, now 95% of it is tire on road noise, that lovely tire on road noise..ohhhhh. Just saying... if your bike is loud and you're using that chain try changing it to a normal one.
BTW I am using a Miche crankset with an EAI cog; used to have a Surly cog on back though (and the thick chain was loud with both).
