Will the Asus 980ti STRIX fit in my Corsair Carbide Air 540?

Hi peeps

I have just bought a Corsair Carbide Air 540 as it seems to be a very good case (link below) http://www.corsair.com/en-gb/carbide-series-air-540-high-airflow-atx-cube-case

and using this site I've selected all the components I want to put in. Among them is the Asus STRIX GTX980Ti graphics card, but when looking at the max gpu length the case accepts it says that it won't fit the graphics card. Does anybody actually own the same card and case to clarify this for me?

Thanks in advance

max gpu length for the air 540 is 320mm (under tech specs)

http://www.corsair.com/en-us/carbide-series-air-540-high-airflow-atx-cube-case

the Asus STRIX GTX980Ti is 305mm long

https://www.asus.com/Graphics-Cards/STRIXGTX980TIDC3OC6GD5GAMING/specifications/

the NON OC is also 305mm long

https://www.asus.com/Graphics-Cards/STRIXGTX980TIDC36GD5GAMING/specifications/

so they both fit.

I just check the site and I don't get any compatibility issues with the case and GPU
