Need help about new motherboard and CPU

I got a new Motherboard and CPU 
MSI - Z370 GAMING PRO CARBON ATX LGA1151
Intel - Core i5-8400 2.8GHz 6-Core 

My old ones was asus b150 and a i5 6500

I got a SSD with windows 10 and a HDD with games and drivers and other stuff

Do i just wipe my SSD and do a clean install of windows and  keep the things on HDD or do i need to wipe both of them or do i do something else. Its my first time upgrading motherboard and CPU 

In short i have no idea what to do. If i have to wipe my SSD and Do a clean install of Windows tell me steps please

you don't have to clean install windows, connect it, set the boot order to the ssd and see if you'll need to reactivate it.

If you're sure you're not going to ever do any overclocking you could go with the 8600k and a H Board and come out around the same price as planned with the Z370 and the 8400, but you will get a better processor. (2.8ghz vs 3.6ghz)

 

Before doing the drive swap use this installation tool from Microsoft and any flash drive over 8GB to make a some new install media. Nice to have before hand in case the drive swap doesn't boot (it should thought). Would suck to build and then not boot, and have to swap back to the old system to make a drive.
