    hello I recently bought two sata new hard drives and was looking in my case (I have a Dell XPS 410) and i realized that the sata power cables that go to the two internal hard drive bays are different than the ones that go to the externally accessible 5.5 drive bays and also externally accessible 3.5 inch hard drive bays
    (i am planing to move my current hard drive to one of the 3.5 inch bays)

    to be more descriptive the difference between the cables are that the one that goes the internal accessible hard drive bays wire colors are:


    while the cables too the externally accessible drive bays are:


    so i guess my question is can i plug the orange black red black yellow cable into my hard drive without it dieing
