Question How do I tell my CPU is damaged because of overclocking?

I make a long story short:

..So I finished my new build 9600K. My old CPU 3570K still runs well, then I thought about overclocking it seriously.

after researching some youtube videos, I ventured to overclock it. As luck could have it, I managed to get the chip booted up at 4.9GHz. Then I ran AIDA64 and observed 2 of the cores soared up to 103 and 102 degrees. I terminated the test immediately.

I know that the industrial recommendation for Intel CPU is below 85 degrees. How do I tell if my beloved 3570K has been damaged or not?

Don't worry about that 100C for a short moment. CPU has protection against stuff like this. Your system would have frozen or rebooted to protect the CPU from being damaged. The only way to tell is to use it normally and see if it gives you any problems.

I say you're fine. This did not damage the CPU.

Actually, that happened in 3 tests. I was waiting for the shutdown but it never happened. Does that mean the protection mechanism wasn't reached or the protection mechanism is not functioning?
