I installed a CM hyper212+ today so I decided to run the Crysis 2 demo on its highest settings and see what I could get (granted my current monitor has a native resolution in the 13-- x 6-- range I think). My CPU never reached higher than low 40s, as did the system temp. My one concern was that my GPU temp had a high of 85. Is this flirting with danger? If so, would my only solution be to improve system airflow? I have room for a side intake fan in that general area.

yeah 85C is a little high, you could try to to add a fan and see if it helps.
What kind of 6870 model? Is it the one that blow the hot air out the back of the card or egg-shaped or what? Is this brand new card? What is your ambient temp?
Oh my, that cannot be good because the HD 6870 is supposedly a mid-range performer and shouldn't be hitting that kind of temp... Yes I do believe that is too hot, maybe add another exhaust fan if you can or intake fan.
