I tried to set my DS3 host frequency (the number that is multiplied by the Multiplier to get overall speed) to 280, afterwards saving and quitting Bios. My computer kept trying to start, but failed, so I turned to PSU off and restarted, going to Bios. I saw that I had accidendly set the host frequency to 380 - is my hardware damaged? I set it back to normal right after. My computer seems to be working fine.

Please help!

Yeah, it looks like it's running fine.

Somehow I suspect my CPU is not running at 1 degree C as Everest seems to think, though,

that is just everest, the only way to get the real temp is either the bios or core temp, lol, its almost impossible to damage hardware by breifly overclocking, especially if you don't increase voltage.
