trek bb90 sram red set up ? user advice

hi this question if for anyone who uses a press fit bb that goes right into the frame on trek bicycles more specifically a trek bb90 and sram red gxp cranks .

do you have a trek pressfit bb and run a sram red crank ?
how did you set your bike up what kind of bearings did you choose and why ?
do you compete or ride serious on your bike?
how did you set your cranks up what parts did you choose how did you install them ?
what are the biggest issues you have dealt with and what do you do to over come them??

i feel because of lack of experience with this BB system im doing it wrong .
i have one of bearings already running ruff after 5 weeks of use and im scratching my head as to what im doing wrong .
id really hate to abandon my trek madone 7 project 1 just because of a bearing issue , but i really need a competition level bike that i can compete on this was the best bike i can afford and i tried my best to choose parts that where affordable and high quality enough for amateur races , thanks for taking the time to read >>>!!!
