If it's always noisy it's probably gear mesh as you guessed.
Two things about it:
- Check the mesh with a least one or two spur revolution. The mesh could be good at one position not the others (the spur is not always spot on center and the .1 or .2mm offset will fool your mesh)
- Not all pinion are made equal. I have different brand of pinions some are noisy some not (narrow ones especially are noisy).

Aluminum screws are really brittle compared to titanium. My buddy had hem and they all rounded out pretty quick. You have to have a fresh hex driver each time or its gonna be bad news

Or, instead of forcing the threads to form with a screw, you could cut threads with a tap and have no problem using aluminum screws. Now, aluminum is not nearly as strong as steel or titanium, so the use of aluminum screws should be limited to low stress areas. Nice thing is aluminum is even lighter than titanium.
