Excuse me,
I am going to be upgrading my motherboard and CPU, and I was wondering if I would need to reinstall Windows 8 (Ugh.). The processor upgrade will be replacing a locked core i7 with an unlocked one, and the Mobo upgrade would still be the same chipset, just a different board.
Thank you in advance for any answers.

No. Win8 is held on your disk drive.
