If all you are doing is moving from one case to another then there is no reason to remove the processor or RAM.

It's not necessary to remove the CPU from the motherboard.

If you have a really heavy CPU cooler you need to remove and install the motherboard very carefully.

This might be a good time to re-apply new thermal compound for your CPU cooler.

No cooler? You mean you just have the stock cooler, right?
