Upgrading my mobo and cpu. Do I need to format my other drives as well as reinstalling windows?

Potentially a dumb question, but as far my research has gotten, I need to reinstall/reactivate windows after the upgrade, but my setup has 2 SSDs and a HDD. Will they need to be backed up and formatted or can I just transition seamlessly with them? Have a lot of stuff especially on the HDD, so would prefer not having to reinstall it all :p

Yes. That happens during the OS install, once you have the new system built up.

From the above link, Section II, Step 6 & 7 speak to deleting all existing partitions on that drive, and installing to the blank drive.
