Adapting Thermalright XP90 HSF to LGA1155 board

So I had a Thermalright XP90 lying around which I thought it would be wasteful being kept in the storage. The HSF fits natively onto a stock PGA478 retention bracket. I've decided to try to to adapt it into a LGA1155 board.
A quick search on Google shows that the mounting holes on the are close to one another. I would just need to split the PGA478 retention bracket apart on its width.
