    I know that it's normal for the laptop to heat up, but I tend to want to help keep it cool, especially in hot weather.

    I placed a clothes peg under the back end of it, so that it's raised at a slight diagonal from the counter top. I also have a little desk fan, sitting behind the rMBP, that is aimed downwards so that it blows air onto back of the screen as well as underneath.

    It "seems" to make a small difference.

    What DIY ideas do you use?

    I suppose it can't hurt but as many have said here--aluminum is a great conductor of heat so you can expect the surface of your rMBP to get warm--sometimes very warm--it is just doing its job keeping the components cool.
