Hi!
I just ordered a watercooling kit, installed it,works fine.It isnt loud, but the pump makes my case vibrating.
Any ideas how to isolate the vibration-impulses would be great.

Could use some of those double-sided sticky pads to absorb some of the vibrations I suppose?

I mounted my pump on the exterior, seems to work without vibrations.

Put some foam under the pump (I suppose that is vibrating). You can use the white sort of foam that mobos sit on when packaged...
