Default Faulty PSU cable?

Hello everyone,

I just noticed that my 24 pin PSU cable has two cables inserted into one socket, leaving the adjacent one empty (picture in attachments). This system has been running without problems for more than 6 months.

Is this something that should be replaced?

That's normal. That pin usage was removed in ATX v1.3 - April 2003.
