Why reinstall Windows on Platform change?

So I just upgraded to a 9600k (yihaa!) after quite a few years on my trusty 4790k. I wanted to see everything work first and just booted into Windows. Of course the old maxim is that you should reinstall Windows every time you swap motherboards. I fail to see why though. I also, after about 36 hours, can't see any reason. There is no lag, no performance issues, no stutter or anything else I detect that's wrong.

Why should one reinstall?

Ps. Sorry if this is the wrong thread, I felt it more appropriate here than in the Windows forums.
