Yes if you don't have any airflow over it.

I use a few pieces of foam to help isolate vibrations.

well, the pump will be right above a 140mm fan , but do i need a hole in the foam so it can vent?

what about rubber feet? not sure if it's enough though

just double-side tape the pump to secure it down or..?

It's called a sponge. Sidewinder sells them.

Is the pump on top of some 140mm bracket?

no it's on top of a divider, with a 140mm below it

Gel stuff is supposed to work good too:

I've always just used a piece of whatever scrap foam I had, like a piece of eggcrate, but something like gelstuff would look better..

If you wanted, you could cut a hole out of the middle so you could get some extra air flow on bottom.

The easiest, low cost and allows air to cool the base of the pump while reducing any noise is to pick up two rubber grommets at Lowes for less than $1.
