If you don't take the cooler off (you don't need to if you are moving the motherboard and CPU to the new case) then no just leave it, but if you are removing the cooler from the CPU then you will need to apply new paste (and clean off the old stuff).

Other then laziness is there a reason you cant thoroughly clean and re-apply paste? I say...why risk it. You have the cpu off, the cooler out, there is no more perfect time to do this! If I have this opportunity I always take it.
