Hey guys, for fun, I tried in the Nvidia Control Panel to test the core clock at 1.25 GHz, the screen became all white and crissing sound came, I manually pressed the restart button, about 3 seconds elapsed between the white screen and pressing the reset button. Any damage could have occured?

Well, if it is working fine now, then I think you are all good. Go run some benchies and 3d apps to be shure.

I didn't run any games, because I just set the slider to 1.25 GHz and pressed the "test" button, and the white screen came, and I jumped on the restart button.

well I just ran 3DMark06 and I had no graphical problems at all, no artifacts. I ran dxdiag tests w/o any problems, Flight Simulator X ultra high settings without any problems, and Battlefield 2142 ultra high no graphical problems. My temps are the same as before. What happened exactly is that before letting you save a oc, the nvidia control panel gives you the option to "test", as soon as I pressed test, the white screen came with the crissing sound, for 3 seconds or less before I restarted my PC. Am I pretty covered with this? I mean there shouldn't be damage right?

There was no damage done. You cannot cause any physical damage that I know of just by increasing clocks. You would have to increase Vcore to hurt anything.

Though increasing clocks wouldn't automatically increase Vcore? using the Nvidia Control Panel, do they link the Clocks OC to Vcore or it has to be done seperatly.

The only way to change voltage on a Nvidia GPU is through hardware change. You have to ground out resistors manually to do it.
