Wow. That's high. My 7870 idles at about 35c and while gaming it peaks at 46 at stock clocks. But I gave the Gigabyte oc edition with a better cooler. Witch one do you have??

We don't know what your ambient temperatures are. If your 7870 was actually reaching 120C and not shutting down automatically it needs to be RMA'd.
85C is still a little hot.

If 85c is hot then why in various posts through the net it's been stated that they say 90c is acceptable?

85C is fine for in game temps, just watch the temps if they go any higher.

90C might be safe, but the majority of 7870's I've seen don't get anywhere near that on stock clocks.

Mine idles at 30-35C and hits 60C under max load; my room is generally at 21-23C.

Check your case's airflow...

My 7870 stays around 82c overclocked due to low fan speeds. Its fine. I think the thermal limit is around 95

Well I haven't hit 90's during my regular sessions of gaming. I have a mild overclock going (1130) but when I was trying to do all kinds of craziness with overclocking (not too crazy lol) I've see in climb pretty high.
