Yes you should be using locktite. I would also check you've put the crank together properly. Correct me if I'm wrong but while an imperfectly fitted PF bearing will creak, the preload from the crank shouldn't permit it to migrate loose in the frame no matter how poor the bearing fit is :noidea:

You would also need a primer 7649.
But honestly I would scrap these plastic cups and replace them with aluminium screwed-together bottom bracket.

I would use 7649 and medium strength 641 retaining compound.

Some of the red loctites (number not specified) will trash the carbon.

I've got an S5 and I found there was quite a bit of misalignment between the left and right sides which caused the creaking.

I am running a similar set-up. I have not been able to solve that issue with a solution that lasts. I am thinking of going to a threaded BB solution now.

This is what I was suspecting with my S5 when after short period of time two bearings (oryginal Rotor and Enduro replacement) on NDS started grinding.
After swaping plastic cups for aluminium threaded-together bb (Wheels mfg) similar thing happened with Enduro angular bearing, this time on DS :)
I gave up on Enduro bearings, went for NTN LLB ultra low friction seal bearings (from hambini). So far so good.
Having said all that, for number of years I didn't have any issues using plastic Sram bb-right bb on R5.
