Of course if the CPU overheats, it could fry. This is true for Intel CPUs as well. Older AMDs didn't have thermal protection, so if it got too hot, it would just cook itself.
FX-8350 @ 4.7 cooled by H80, 32GB Mushkin Enhanced Blackline 2133, Asus Sabertooth 990FX, 2x Radeon HD 7850 2GB in X-fire, 500GB Samsung 850 Evo, 4TB Seagate, 3TB WD Black, 2x 1TB WD RED in RAID 0
