[SOLVED] Is it OK for the PCIe power cable connector to have 2 "no wire" slots at the PSU side?

Hi everyone,

I have a ROG Thor-850P PSU and needed a 3rd power cable to feed my new MSI 3080 Suprim X. I got this one by CableMod after double-checking it suits my PSU. I noticed that the PSU connectors on other cables that I have feature 7 "slots" (the new one has only 6), here's the difference visualized:



As you might have guessed, I kinda suck at electronics, from what I understand the CableMod PSU connector is missing one GND compared to others (the cable does have thicker wires though, not sure if that matters). I didn't notice any abnormal behavior after running some benchmarks, is there anything I should be worried about? Thanks!
