Will swapping CPU anger windows 10? Lol

So I have an i5-4690k and my wife has a 4670k, I'm going to be selling my rig soon to build a new one but I kinda want to give her the 4690k and let the 4670k go with my rig. Will swapping the processors cause our windows 10's to become unauthorized?

No. The only change that will effect the OS outside of drivers is the motherboard.

No. You would only have to purchase a new Windows license if your current Windows license is OEM and you changed your motherboard.
