So I am about to upgrade my CPU and I'm gonna need a new Motherboard for this as well. I know it's always better to do clean Windows install but my question is: when? Before the hardware upgrade or after? And if it is after, do I need to do something else before?

after. the reason for doing it at all is so windows can install the proper drivers, and that cannot happen until after the system is together.

backup any data you want to save first. a list of passwords that you will need, programs that need installation. the basics.
