As far as I can determine, the Xeons are the same chips binned for lower voltage and power output. And there's lots of guys running Xeons on this forum.

You can run the 35xx series in a regular single socket LGA1366 motherboard with no issue, but when it comes to the 55xx series Xeons, I'm not quite sure though I'd assume they would.

35xx series and regular i7's cannot be run/used in dual socket motherboards
55xx series can(well, duh ) be run/used in dual socket motherboards

I suspect that that as long as the motherboard BIOS supports it, the 55xx series will work in a single socket motherboard. Just keep in mind, the 35xx series are priced comparatively with the i7's, the 55xx series are not, I would never consider the 55xx series for a single socket system for that reason alone.
