[SOLVED] Possible 8-pin PCIe mismatch on 5700 XT

I have a Sapphire 5700x Nitro + and I'm trying to hook up a couple 8-pin PCIe cables to a Corsair HX1000i modular PSU. I'm using a 6+2 pin cable and the shape of one of the pin slots does not seem to match up with the port on the graphics card. Check the top-right pin slot on the cord and the top-left slot on the card.

I can't seem to find another example of the card's PCIe layout, so I'm thinking (hoping) that it's just a design quirk and that it's just a normal ground (?) pin. I just want to confirm before I end up doing anything stupid.

Sorry about the picture quality, by the way. It's the best I can do for now.
