As always, Your Mileage May Vary, but from the perspective of an automotive professional, the percentage of 60 degree head failures occurring in concert with an overheat is very near 100% in personal experience. Phrased another way, those 3x00 head failures accompanied with "it never overheated!" stories, in my own experience, typically presented low on coolant with evidence of long standing coolant leak problems.
