In C# you can place an assignment in a checked context to force an exception at runtime if the value being assigned is outside the range of the data type being assigned to.
void foo(int m) // assume that m is +2,147,483,647 (i.e. max value for an usigned Int32)
int j = m * 4; // will not throw an exception but value in j will be truncated
int i = m * 4; // will throw an exception because it's in a checked context
This assumes that you're using the C# compiler's default option which is /checked-. If you had set the compiler's /checked+ option then the first assignment to j would have also caused an exception at runtime in the example above. In a checked context, arithmetic overflow raises an exception.
However, if you attempt to assign a value that's tool large for a data type which is known at compile time this will cause a compiler error. For example:
const int x = 2147483647; // Max int
const int y = 2;
int z = x * y;
