Windows reinstal after CPU upgrade?

Hi guys I am currently running an i5 cpu and want to upgrade to i7
I am using Win 7 , do I need to reinstal win once I change CPU?
Normally this shouldnt be the case but its my first intel cpu change and saw a couple of articles that it may need reinstalling...

Ironically I bought the i5 pc because before I had an overclocked dual core AMD and I wanted better performance.
The irony is that my AMD dual core outperforms in some tasks my i5...

Thanks for your help

I think you don't need to reinstall Windows if you are changing CPU only. As i know you need to reinstall Windows only if you are replacing Motherboard.

True, for replaincing cpu, ram, gpu, extra hdd/ssd you do not need to reinstall OS.
