Read me: This guide is archived. Many laptops covered by this have failing feet and most 3rd party replacements are anti-slip and do not fail in ways that make the notebook hard to balance when it happens, which is common with many furniture feet without impossible to remove glue and coddling the laptop in your bag or on your person. This will still work, but keep extra feet handy when they fall off. Unless you have a completely intact set of OEM feet, it is recommended to remove the factory feet that remain and install a non-slip 3rd party replacement set using this guide:

If your Mac laptop is running hotter then you would like, this guide will show you how to install rubber feet to lift the laptop to allow for additional cooling of the system.

Read before starting: While this guide will help reduce the temperature your Mac runs at, early systems (2006-2012 MacBook/Pro) will always run hotter then Retina systems by design. Apple relies on the ports to provide fresh air for the chassis and reuses the hot air in the system. This is not an issue with the rMBP. These laptops have real cooling and will see reduced temperature drops.

13" MacBook Pro only (Optical drive/Retina): 13" models lack a dGPU. These systems will not see as much of a temperature reduction as there is less heat the system needs to disperse due to this omission. This does not apply to dGPU systems (15”/17” MacBook Pro).

In the original guide, the author used a Early 2009 17” MacBook Pro was used by the author. Before this fix, the system regularly ran up to 180° F without taller feet. The operating temperature was reduced to 122° after adding taller feet.
