Hyper 212 EVO Mounting Bracket is too small for AMD AM3+ FX8350 CPU

I'm trying to install a Hyper 212 EVO heat sink on an AMD FX8350 chip (AM3+). The mounting bracket opening is 2.6cm x 2.9cm. The AM3+ chip is 3.7cm x 3.8cm so the bracket will not seat around the CPU and leaves a gap between the CPU and heat sink of about 1/16 inch. Is this the wrong bracket? Specs say Hyper 212 EVO is compatible with AM4, AM3 and AM3+.

 

Any thoughts? Ideas? Did it ship with the wrong bracket?
