Using X services on the Intel(R) Manycore Testing Lab is unsupported, yet possible. This article demonstrates in general and in detail the four necessary steps to run X on the server:
1) Make a standard, character-based connection
2) Run the required software on the server
3) Run your secure PCX server software
4) Make the connection
Two secure PCX server solutions are discussed.

I think that you've all seen this equation before:
P = a * C * V2 * f
Where P is power, C is capacitance, V is the voltage across the gate (typically, Vdd), f is the clock frequency and a is some constant.
