Sure. However, it's entirely possible that game+mfaktc uses less power than just mfaktc. Maybe the fan slows down when you start playing the game, but you notice when it speeds back up when you stop?
To imagine some numbers for the power your GPU is drawing (with the PSU spinning its fan to account for the power requirements):
Playing LoL + mfaktc medium = 70 W
mfaktc medium = 95 W
mfaktc high = 100 W
