does max heat and fan damage MBA

So I had the usual heating issues with my MBA and reapplied the thermal paste, which helped a bit. However, if I play WoW or watch a HD video for about 30min, my temp and fan speed still reach up to 79C and 6200. The noise and heat donít really bother me, but Iím worried that if I continually use it at those levels, it will damage my MBA. Will that be the case? Does anyone have any experiences running the MBA at max heat and fan levels for long periods of time?
