Disc brake squeaking starts with high temperatures on the face of the pad and then it is magnified at the back of the pads where they contact the caliper. When you replaced the brake pads did you have the rotors machined? You should because the run-out on the rotors can be part of the problem. Also you have anti-rattle clips; were they installed correctly? If you did these correctly then try this: Remove the brake pads and on the back of the pads apply a couple of heavy beads of RTV silicone and let it set up for 20 minutes then install the pads; that should take care of the noise.
