Intel X520-DA2 doesn’t fit DL360e G8?

Just bought a pair of DL360e G8s and X520-DA2s to go with but I can’t get them to fit in the x8 slot. The standard bracket is obviously too long and the low profile bracket makes it so the SFP+ ports don’t quite line up with the opening of the riser card/chassis. Anyone run into this before or know where I can find a bracket that fits?

So that'd be the HP 560SFP+ (665249-B21)?

So the images I see of this card online, it appears to be astandard PCIe card, no reason it shouldn't line up in the slot

I guess I should clarify that I'm trying to fit it in the low-profile slot as there's already a RAID controller in the larger slot, which I don't have a low-profile bracket for. So the problem is that the low-profile X520-DA2 bracket doesn't allow the SFP+ ports to line up with the opening on the chassis of the DL360e G8 riser card.
