With a oscilloscope probably I can see the spikes, since the multi-meter refresh rate is around 250/300ms but the ADC converter of the FLUKE still miles better than the motherboard sensor. On motherboards with very low-end VRM or not very good BIOS for sure can be a issue
How can it be fake if it's doubled?
As for the OP, unless you need to change something you can leave it.
There really isn't a wrong way to do all of this as long as it's stable and safe IMO. I would recommend a real stress test like P95 (no AVX) though.
Everything is pretty much summed up here:
