So the issue at hand is that when I play runs there are always little extra noises every time I move my hand, and I'm not sure what I'm doing wrong. My only guess is that I'm fretting too hard (almost like tapping the note), but I just wanted some other opinions, suggestions, ect.

That's a muting issue. If you aren't muting the strings properly at any speed doing any technique, there will be unwanted noise. Fretting too hard may be part of it (though one usually associates out-of-pitch notes as an issue with fretting too hard), but the real issue is probably that you aren't muting the strings and minor little sounds that you normally wouldn't hear are being amplified thanks to the gain you're using (lemme just assume you're playing metal style triplet runs).

Simply practice the runs (teehee) at a slow pace and gradually increase the tempo until you're playing at the desired speed with no excess noise.

Triplets are just another rhythm. How can they affect your cleanliness?
