You haven't broken it. You may have uncovered that it doesn't handle full-power heat generation anymore (say, from dust accumulation), or you may have uncovered a bad memory stick.

If it's a desktop, open it up and blow out the dust. Check to make sure all fans still turn when the machine is powered on. You might also choose to run Prime95 on fewer cores so that it generates less heat- if single-threaded operation still produces these errors, then it is more likely you have a failing memory stick and less likely dust / heat management is the culprit.

You might look into memtest86, or another memory-testing program, to try to narrow down what might be causing the hardware errors.

EDIT: In your post in another thread, you mentioned overclocking. Getting an error like this means you went too far, and need to back off the overclock for stability.
