More Namco Noir Clone Questions

Hello,

I wanted to ask a few more questions about my newly acquired Noir clones.

1. I have a naomi sun psu and I don't where to plug in this end.

Here are some pics of the inside of the cab
PSU: Min Dong MD-AT350-24v

behind that plug is another empty spot

2. Are there any better panels I can upgrade to? There are other topics about this but they're a few years old. Since display technology is always improving on the consumer side, I imagine there are now better commercial options too.

Maybe I can add the answers to the wiki page I made for this cab - http://wiki.arcadeotaku.com/w/Namco_Noir

The Internals of the Clone are nothing like the original. So please don`t :)

Even though i have a clone cab myself, making a wiki page for them would be kind of pointless, unless it contained just a brief description of what they are and how to spot them.
Other than that, there are so many manufacturers with various degrees of "quality" and components that trying to list them comprehesively would be, again, pointless.

Having it named in a way that a passer-by could confuse the original with the clone, in my opinion, serves the opposite purpose a wiki should.

Ya I understand they’re different. I thought all the clones were basically the same though. If they were, a little sub-page for clones might’ve been useful.

I didn’t know that many clone variations existed. I thought they’d be similar enough to mine that other clone owners might find it useful.

Point taken guys :)
