I did over-torqued head bolts, all 10 bolts by 17 ft lb. No bad sounds. New gasket, new bolts. What to do in this situation?

If the engine is back together and everything seems fine, let it go. As long as you torqued all the bolts the same and in the correct sequence. If you loosten them now, the head bolts will most likely lose integrity and loosten for you.

Go back and do it right-remember metal expands when heated-that's why it has a torque specification how tight that bolt should be-
