Current Intel® CPUs have built in Thermtrip # at 130c that will shut the processor down. This is on top of board alarms and other settings that would sound or shut the computer down if there was a heating problem. So is it possible that you damaged the processor? Yes but it is hard to do.

Give it a chance to cool off, and put the new cooler on before testing again.

your cpu should have shut itself down before serious damage.

Make sure you have proper cooling next time. Good chance the cpu still works but theres always a chance of it dying.
