If you can fit the heatsink and fan then yes, you can. But I suggest you go buy correct one to install.

Can you? Maybe, if you were able to find / custom create a bracket so that it would fit over the CPU and connect to the mainboard mounting points properly.

Should you? NO. It is best to use a heatsink that was specifically designed for socket 775. This way you will not risk damaging your CPU/Mainboard and get better cooling/reliability with the CPU.

I *could* (with enough modification) install an Escort radiator on a Super-Duty truck, but I wouldn't be doing myself any favors :)
