No you cannot.  These 130W cpus only work in the Precision T3400 with 525W power supply.   The voltage regulators on the motherboard do not support a 130W processor.

The 755 Tower has 305W power supply.

The T3400 has 525W power supply.

The voltage regulators on the 755 motherboard DO NOT SUPPORT a 130W core 2 Extreme processor.

This is not and will not ever be supported on a 755 MT.

The poster above is MALWARE. 

Don't fall for such nonsense.

Upgrading power supply WILL NOT WORK.

I second what @speedstep says and agree with the post speedstep is referring to being "nonsense."

The top processor a 755 can take is a Q9650 granted your system is 64-bit.  The size of your 755 wasn't mentioned and I'm mainly speaking for the MT.
