Yes, the measurements can be trusted.

Usually, when measurements aren't exact, they're erring on the side of caution and there's more clearance available as opposed to less than stated.

The width is 126mm which is less than the Mugen 5 Rev. B at 130mm. You're looking at the depth.

This is the motherboard I'm using. I was looking at the scythe fuma or mugen, but I'm afraid of them touching the back of my video card, idk if they fit

 

I was also thinking of a push pull 120mm aio, because ik that would fit. But im unsure of it's good

 

I could put a 240mm in the front, but I dont want my GPU to have to use hot air

 

 

pls help, case is CM q300p

Either would fit just fine. 

Here's an example with the Mugen 5 Rev. B: https://pcpartpicker.com/b/q8cYcf

The Fuma 2 isn't much wider.

If you're asking about the coolers, they're both great. 

What cpu are you cooling and what ram are you using? What kind of features are you looking for in a cooler?

Where are you shopping / located? Budget?

USA, amazon would be dope if its on there

 

im getting a 9700k, i dont want crazy overclocks or anything. 4.7 or 4.8 GHz all cores would be nice (if that is reasonable)

 

I dont want any features really, it would be cool if I could do push pull though. The gigabyte board has a beefy chunk of stuff near the I/O shield so idk if I could put another fan on the mugen

 

I dont rlly care about stock fans as im slapping noctua p12 fans on there, I dont care about RGB

If you already have NF-P12's and are replacing the fans, you could save a bit of money with a cheaper heatsink like the Neptwin V2: https://pcpartpicker.com/product/3XXfrH/deepcool-cpu-cooler-neptwinv20

The Ninja 5 might perform a bit better or at least look a bit better: https://pcpartpicker.com/product/dZ3H99/scythe-ninja-5-430-cfm-cpu-cooler-scnj-5000

Yes, the measurements can be trusted.

Usually, when measurements aren't exact, they're erring on the side of caution and there's more clearance available as opposed to less than stated.

LPX is standard profile which nearly all coolers are designed to clear. It'll fit fine.
