Current Loop in Magnetic Field

Given a square loop of wire centered at the origin and the coordinate axes is such that x is the to the right, z is to the top, and y is through the page (or screen). The plane of the loop will lie in the x-y plane. There is a magnetic field in the x direction. If the loop is fixed on the y-axis then it will rotate.
The question I have is what difference does it make if I have the original setup (above) compared to having one side of the loop on the y-axis and rotating around there? More specifically, would the forces be the same on each segment wire in each case?

Thanks
