The flash tube isn't the part that overheats or burns out.

It's the circuitry that takes 6 volts and cycles it up to 300 volts.

Shooting an SB800 for 2 hours at full power using f11-f16 would possibly burn it out or overheat it.

On the other hand the Quantum won't burn out or overheat as the flash tube is not enclosed allowing any heat to dissipate.

Theres only one sun. Why do I need more than one light to get a natural result?
