    Until you change your Motherboard. .. Ms stores hash IDs(dont know which) as a proof of activation on their servers.
    U so ever have upgraded to windows 10 make sure to sign in with Microsoft account instead of local account.. this way even if a hardware change is made to a computer you can still activate windows in case of Failure.
