It turned out that I had an extra link in my chain which caused the "Rear Derrailleur Noise" by forcing the rear der to far forward. Now my new cassette works great!! Thanks!!!
Hey, I wonder...Kristin

Did it make the noise in every gear or only a couple gears? I recently installed a new cassette and chain. Ever since the 15 & 16 cog gears have been making noise. I've played with the adjustment and can't make it go away. I wonder if I could have the same deal.
Not the same problemKerry Irons

The situation before was that the chain was too slack, allowing the upper jockey pulley to pivot forward and ride on the two largest cogs. Your problem is in the middle of the cassette. Does it make noise regardless of which chainring it's on? Is the cage perfectly lined up with the cogs in these gears? If you turn the adjusting barrel (either direction), does the noise get better or worse? If you turn the barrel so far that the shifting deteriorates, does the noise persist? Any chance those cogs are reversed so that the shifting ramps, etc. are on the wrong side? It may just be taking time to settle in.
