I use HD velcro to mount my pumps. Works great.
Don't waste your money on the Shoggy Sandwich. Read my review on FCPU before you buy it.

When I built the loop, I put some foam under the res, but i remember thinking that I should have put foam on other parts of it where I thought it might eventually shift and touch. I bet thats the problem. I was planning on tearing my loop apart and cleaning it in august, but I might move that date up to next week to try and eliminate this noise.

Thanks for all the help, and ill update it after the teardown.

The dual pump res, is it a bay mounted res, or somerhing elsr?
If it's a bay res, you will have a hard time decoupling the pumps hile still attached to the res.
I like my pumps all by themselves, not mounted to anything.
Martin of MLL said he just lets his pumps hang by the tubes in mid-air. That would probably be the best way for sound, but it might look a bit silly.

I modded it to fit in the HDD Bay. Foam covers the entire bottom where it sits, but you can seee in this picture that it is not the only point of contact between the cage and the res

I own a XSPC dual bay pump/res combo. It came with a D5 Vario pump. It has an adjustable speed dial in the rear of the pump which is easily accessible to use a flat blade screw driver to adjust. In my Corsair 350D for some reason the pump makes a lot of racket (sounds like vibration) on the 3 setting. Anything before or after is quiet. It has settings from 1 to 5. Those correspond to rpm's evidently. So the 1 setting is spinning at around 1000 rpm and the 5 at 5000 rpm. This.......according to the ASUS UEFI BIOS. Thankfully, this is not an issue for me. Just giving my 2 cents if it helps at all.

The pump blocks are part of the res. There is really no way to decouple the pumps. My xspc dual pump res transferred considerable vibration to the case and was the loudest part of the system. Turning down the pump speed did help. After trying everything I could think of the reduce noise I decided to try a different res. I have installed a Koolance RP-452X2 res. Now that I have a few days with it, all micro bubbles are gone I now have a totally quiet system. I think the different design pump block and the different material the res is made from have made this possible. Same 2 pumps, same speeds, same bay mounting, number of screws etc. I can not hear the D5's at full power and I have to touch the pump to tell if it's running and I feel just the slightest vibration, night and day difference.
