Why is there an empty pin in the main power connector of the power supply?

This missing pin is not a defect of your power supply. In the past, this place in the main power connector was to support the –5 V output. Nowadays this output is no longer necessary for modern PC's. According to Intel’s Power Supply Design Guide however, this pin should be kept empty to comply with the specifications.
