It sure can if it goes too far out of range. Keep an eye on that voltage. If it happens again, I wouldn't hesitate to ditch that crappermaster PSU and get a more reliable one.

Question: Was the processor out of voltage range BY .460V, or was the processor voltage itself .460V?

The first would be alarming, the second would be a faulty reading. [Theres no way Windows, let alone the PC, would be powered at that low a power level].

processor voltage itself was .460 V....it has happened to me first time in my life...and first time with this pc since i bought it arnd 1-2 months back....and today i kept eye on voltage and it didnt go beyond 1.100 V or under .900V...

Probably a false reading, as I would expect everything to shut down at that low a voltage. There is the chance, however, of a very unstable PSU.
