Almost ANY hardware change requires a reinstall. Especially if you are changing your processor for a whole different architecture, even if it remains x64 or x86.
I don't know what kind of hardware detection or driver installation Windows does during install, but at the very least you will have a few unused drivers.
Also, changing motherboards requires you to activate Windows again, so you should consider that before switching. A license is not that expensive, but it does cost money. You can also install Windows 10 and leave it without a license, which is what I do.
In my experience, Windows behaves strangely when changing hardware without reinstallation, so just go ahead and do it. It doesn't take much time.
