I'm going to change my old processor Intel Core i3-4130 S1150 3.40GHz 3MB+mainboard, for new AMD FX8-8350 Black Edition Vishera 8 Core AM3+ 4.0GHz 16MB 125W and of course mainboard for socket AM3+.

Do I have to reinstall Windows 7 completely or should I leave intact when I'll assembly everything together?

Thank you guys for your help.

You will need to re-install due to the different motherboard configurations also windows will request that it be reactivated due to the change.
