Grinding noise after new chain

So I replaced my chain today and everything is shifting fine but any bit of force will cause a grinding noise and little vibration through the cranks.
chain ring and cassette look to be in good shape.

cassette and chain ring were done about 400 miles or so.

Any ideas

Same problem. 11 speed GX and problem really started after I replaced the chain.

I did have to replace my derailleur at the same time as it was mangled. I'm pretty sure mine hanger is bent as I have mis-shifting under power, but not on the workstand.

I've been ignoring it, but I hope you can figure it out so I don't have to. :)

Not sure if it's mis-alignment or worn chain/cassette, which look OK...

I’m going to just ride it too. I will update if I find anything.

I had a grinding noise and replaced my chainring and that worked. You got a backup you can try ?

Keep in mind some chains are directional. SRAM chains are not directional but with Shimano, the engraving on the chain must be facing outwards from the bike.
