Default Question about PSU 24 ATX pin power connector

So yeah I'm looking at my Corsair 620 HX series and 23 of the pins all have golden connector thingies inside except 1 is completely blank. No wire going to it or anything its completely blank. I looked at the instructions and apparently this is the -5V pin ( not ground or +12V or anything like that )...so I was wondering...is there not supposed to be anything there!?!?

Yes, there should be something there. Check for a single loose wire. I checked the specs and it seems that -5V is gone. I think it is unused now. The ATX v2.2 revision specification doesn't mention a -5V anymore. (page 20)

Newegg's pic, doesn't show it either. So it's probably nothing to worry about.
