TRUE 1366 same as 1156?

I bought a TRUE and it has the mounting bracket for the 1366 but not the 1156. Is it compatible with my 1156 motherboard or would I have to buy 1156 bracketl one of those, or would it be fine to use the 1366 bracket? There isn't much of a difference between them. Heres the 1366 bracket for comparison bracket

    You'll have to buy the 1156 bracket since the True is a 1366 product.
    The mobo holes are in a different location on the 1156 so the 1366 bracket won't work.

    For the record;

    Actually the TRUE was released and in operation before the release of the 1366.

    But the OP will need an 1156 mounting bracket.
