Default OCZ Vendetta 2 works with LGA 1156 (allegedly)

So I'm moving to an LGA1156 setup and I was wondering if I could still use my OCZ Vendetta 2 cooler with it. OCZ doesn't make a mounting kit for LGA1156 so I had to look elsewhere.

After careful searching I found this mounting bracket

XIGMATEK ACK-I5361 Intel Core i7/Core i5 compatible Bracket Set
Newegg.com - XIGMATEK ACK-I5361 Intel Core i7/Core i5 compatible Bracket Set - CPU Fans & Heatsinks

I emailed OCZ support and they told me that this kit should work with the Vendetta 2 so I went ahead and ordered it from Newegg.

Once all my parts arrive I'll give an update to tell if installation went smoothly.
Intel i5 2500k stock, Corsair H70, Gigabyte GA-Z68X-UD4 mobo, 8GB G-Skill DDR3-1600, Sapphire 6870, 60GB OCZ Agility 3, 1 x WD Black 1TB, 4 x Seagate Barracuda LP 2TB, Thermaltake Spedo Advanced Tower, Seasonic M12D 850w
