The other thought I had was that it might be the ends of the internal spacers making noise where they contact the bearing races when I load the drive train. Perhaps there is a small amount of movement between the parts causing the noise.
The noise seems be related to pressure on the drive side pedal.
The hub is properly torqued and the QR is cleaned and lubed regularly.
I appreciate your thoughts and possible solutions. BTW the bike is silent with other wheels
1. dismantling the rear hub and forcing some lube in between the bearings and cylindrical spacer ends and spoke head/hub shell interface.
2. cleaning (but no lube) between the spokes at crosses.
3. Greased freebody splines.
No idea which of these actions actually stopped the noise.
My QR and dropouts are always cleaned and lubed so not a factor with this noise.
You will need it!
I bought a pair of as new 38mm full carbon tubulars, with novatech ceramic hubs.
They are +- 200km old so pretty new. They are from 2010.
I know the seller in person.
The front wheel makes a strange noise like if it was rubbing somewhere.
What i did:
Opened the brakes and checked if in fact is what rubbing somewhe, it wasn't.
Changed the front wheel to another one i had at home to check if the noise is really coming from there: the noise is from the front wheel.
When the wheel spins free on the air, there is no sound. -> only when sitted on the bike
The front hub seems to be tightened, so no play.
I could tell, but not sure, that the noise is made when valve passes through the floor.
Options i considered:
1- the tubular is not well glued so when valve section hits the floornit touches the rim and makes the noise
2- some bearing problem that i cannot identify.
What do you think?

How many drivers does a buggy have?
So let's just say I'm drivin' this buggy...
and if you fix your attitude you can ride along with me.

sorry, what do you mean by "you'd ever get out the file"?
I am also convinced that is a valve problem. Either too small hole for the valve like bikerjulio says, or a too big hole as you suggest.
don't think it is a mechanical problem, due to the condition of the wheels.
