Question Will my RTX 3090 hit the SATA ports on a B450-F motherboard?

Hello, im looking to see if anyone knows if my 3090 will fit on my b450-f mb. Currently, I have a 1080ti, and it was unable to fit in the top slot due to the sata ports blocking it. Now i dont know if it could have fitted or not, but i instead just placed it into the other PCIe slot. As my 3090 goes, it will not fit in the bottom slot due to my case, so i want to be sure if those sata ports will block it as well or if there is a way to fit it in another way. Any help is very much appreciated. :)

How is that possible? I've worked with that board and a GTX1080Ti a long while back. Can you parse the make and model of the GTX1080Ti you own? Also parse a picture of how the GPU is put into that system? I think you're case might be impeding the card from seating flush with the slot(perpendicularly).

Look at this build;

Picture number 3,

you can see the SATA ports not hindering the GPU from sitting flush with the PCIe slot and making a right angle with the motherboard.

Thanks for the reply, and as far as my 1080ti goes, its the nvidia founders edition. With the picture of the build your showing me, its best to assume i either wasnt slotting it in properly, or my case and or motherboard might have been the issue. Though I will say that I have not tried to put my 1080ti in the upper slot for quite some time, as i was ok with it in the bottom. Also i took a few pictures of my pc, and where my gpu sits. Also apologies if the pictures arent great, my pc sits in a small part of my table and i didnt have alot of time to take any better. https://pcpartpicker.com/b/3GFG3C
