Out of all the overheating posts I've seen, I don't recall any that mentioned damage as a result (do recall one transmission caught on fire, but was because transmission fell apart and the fluid caught fire when it hit the exhaust)
I've over heated twice (once from bad fan and once from bad water pump) and I haven't had a problem, but I did not drive for more than 2 minutes after the overheating warning came on.
