picaxe 28x1 starter board power

I put 4.5 volts on the main power terminals of the board, then put 6 volts on the 3 pin power circuit near the top of the board, because i was going to connect a servo and wanted to make sure i had enough power, but it wasn't connected yet.  I think i may have fried something, the chip got really hot.  was this too much power to put through the board?  i thought thats what that extra circuit was for.
