Why do you feel this is true? If the cpu is close to getting damage from heat, it will throttle, and if that isn't sufficent, it will shut the system down, provided you haven't bypassed those protections in bios.

Remember that under stock cooling, in summer, 60 isn't just the norm...it's expected! Nevermind that BOTH cpu and gpu are silicon...why would there be any temperature difference in the maximums they can handle?
