Using these observations together with existing measurements, we determine the component masses and radii to better than 1% precision: M1=2.335-0.013+0.017M, M2=2.260-0.013+0.016M, R1=1.859-0.009+0.012R, and R2=1.808-0.013+0.015R. The nearly identical B9.5 stars have estimated effective temperatures of 10650±200K and 10350±200K. A comparison of these properties with current stellar evolution models shows excellent agreement at an age of about 190Myr and [Fe/H]~-0.18. Both components are found to be rotating at the pseudo-synchronous rate. The system displays a slow periastron advance that is dominated by general relativity (GR), and has previously been claimed to be slower than predicted by theory. Our new measurement, dotω=0.859-0.017+0.042deg/century, has an 88% contribution from GR and agrees with the expected rate within the uncertainties. We also clarify the use of the gravity darkening coefficients in the light-curve fitting Eclipsing Binary Orbit Program (EBOP), a version of which we use here. Description: V541 Cyg was observed spectroscopically at the Harvard-Smithsonian Center for Astrophysics (CfA) with the Digital Speedometer (DS) on the 1.5m Tillinghast reflector at the Fred L. Whipple Observatory on Mount Hopkins (AZ). We gathered 72 exposures between 2000 July and 2004 October (R∼35000). Observations of V541 Cyg were obtained between 2007 May and 2014 November in the course of the Kilodegree Extremely Little Telescope transiting planet program (KELT). The passband of these observations resembles that of a very broad R-band filter. The magnitudes given in tables 2 and 3 are instrumental (not referring to a standard photometric system).
