Default Electricity use

Okay, pretty simple question here:

When running Prime95, does the electricity consumption of the computer increase?

The reason I ask is that the CPU temp rises, but is that because the FP is now in heavy use or is it because it needs more electricity to power it? This is a question I'm liable to be asked when I borg those P3s, so I'd like to go in with a difinitive answer rather than a 'I don't think so.'
