New brand hard drive: can I swap thermal sensors too?

I bought a broken iMac and have been repairing it to give it new life. The hard drive I purchased was a Western Digital and I'm finding out now the original must have been a Seagate because the thermal sensor cables are different. If I purchase a Western Digital thermal sensor cable and install it, will there be any problems?

Thanks very much in advance for your knowledge and time.
