3. I used a torque wrench ::)

Actual setting is 320 NM :y

My torque wrench only goes to 300, so did it up with that plus a BFT smidge with a bar :y
I will correct that after work... That torque is for the front :-[

OK, 320Nm when it is time for that.
Rear hub bearings are 300Nm.
It's the front hub bearings that are 320Nm.
Not that it makes much difference, but it does help to have the target understood and correct.

OK, thanks correction, no problem yet, have to remove it first. Is there any typical life time for rear bearing of Omega?

I don't know is it typical, but my originals lasted about 200 000 km and 220 000 km (or at least I could not find any markings that they have been replaced earlier).
Then one re-newed needed to be replaced after 100 000 km. Now I'm waiting was it just bad batch or is the other one also going soon..

My plod was on its original ones at 285k miles, so nearly 500k kms :o

Some people seem to kill them in a third of that :-\

Interesting difference, perhaps winter time here in Finland has something to do with it. How well the lubrication works in -20C. However, I still think that my noise is bearing failure. It is not rattling but "croaking". The sound did not change when braking with foot or handbrake so not dragging pads or shoes.

Did the sound change during left/right cornering?

Yes, remember when turning left sound was increasing (in right side). Also it was stronger in certain speed e.g. 40-50 km/t. Could not hear. it as clearly in higher speeds when othe noises increased, too.
