does overclocking increase vcore?

does overclocking increase vcore to the point that power can t supply and cause the vcore in mainboard get burned?

I have intel core I7 6800k LGA2011-3 socket
Asus E for mainboard
34 Gig ddr4 RAM
Nvidia gtx 1080
Power crosshair 750 watt.
I use lots of overclocking for render. Now my mainboard doesn't work and the place I went for guarantee says its because my power has low watts.
Should I get a 1200 watt power or what ?

More about overclocking increase vcore
  1. When you overclock (OC) your hardware, it sips a lot more power than under normal circumstances. How much more depends on how OCed it is. And if you overclock heavily and do not keep the hardware sufficiently cool, it will burn or fail. In order to overclock, you need to increase the voltages supplied to the parts: what were you overclocking, the CPU? The GPU? Both? How much and with what voltages?

    What exact PSU do you have? You indicate it's a "crosshair", i presume you mean "Corsair", but what model exactly?

    750 W, in my experience, should be enough for your hardware, even overclocked. But that depends on how much you overclocked and with what voltages, if you went too far upping the volts you may have killed the mobo.

    agree with blas. You do NOT need a 1200w PSU. A really good 750w would be good. The Corsair RM750x is a great PSU, as are the EVGA G2 unit.

    Your mobo may be dead. But having a bigger PSU won't remedy that.

    Thanks a lot. My power is corsair RM 750 I. I did not change any setting regarding voltage or OC in mobo, just did a lot of rendering. For cooling I Have CAPTAIN 240 WHITE. My renders are with v-ray and CPU based. I don't know much about changing Voltage in bios setting so I didn't change anything. I just understood from Coolermaster website( power-supply-calculator) that over clocking can increase vcore's usage of power. so I want to know taking many renders, is my power enough or I should get a better one?

    Your RM750i is a great PSU and is highly rated. Has a 7 year warranty too. Its plenty powerful to drive your system, even with OC'ing.
