I'm looking at transferring my old HDDs from previous build into a new one with different specs (intel core i5 4670, gigabyte H87-D3H, Corsair 2x4gb RAM, AMD r9 270). I know its not as simple as putting it all in and hoping for the best :p  which is why I've got myself another license.

Ideally i'd keep the same drives, without getting a new one to install the new OS.

Is this possible, or will i have to use my current HDDs as secondary drives and get a new primary for the OS?

I would back up your data, and then put the HDD in, reformat, and install Windows with your new license.
