not sure what you mean by clocked and square but it does not matter. (unless there is a big angle from the shaft to CV, then a bad CV will make noise)

the CV's are pretty robust and aren't likely to make a lot of noise, not like a front wheel drive car.
when the car is sitting, if the shafts to CV is pretty straight, IE not much of an angle on the CV;'s then there is even less chance for noise which should be the case.

if the shafts are still off, move the CV's around, if they are smooth and not binding then they are not the noise.

could be a wheel bearing but WB's usually sound more like a dry kind of grinding sound.
with the CV's off you have a great opp to spin the wheel and listen, remove pads if you need to.
also wiggle the hub and see if it moves. if it is a heat issue you may not hear anything

when it is making the noise try pushing in the clutch and coasting.
put it in neutral and let the clutch out and coast.
see if the noise is speed related. does it change with speed.
see if it is engine RPM related
