Nothing is perfect. Even the best, E13 DRS for 2 rings still has some chainslap. As long as you have a deraileur that moves, your chain WILL make noise. Keep in mind chainguides also make their own noises. So if you are getting a chainguide to stop noise...you are using it for the wrong application. Chainguides are mean to stop the chain from dropping. If you want no chain slap, go single speed.

A chainguide plus the sram rear deraileurs would like be a lot better for noise, as sram deraileurs don't jump around as much.
