i just bought a fortron psu and upon inspection i noticed it was missing a pin on the 24 lead connector this doesn`t seem to be a damaged psu because no signs of a dislodged lead were present. after some investigation i learned this is the -5volt lead am i to understand this lead is not needed?

are you going to bark all day little doggie?
or are you going to bite?
