Which Windows program shows the right product key??

Hello.I am planning on upgrading my motherboard and CPU sometime. I have heard that you need the product key and everything to make sure windows works and everything if you are upgrading your motherboard.Here is the issue: I put in the command into Windows Powershell to find out the product key and found it out with success. When I ran the Windows Diagnostic Tool (MGADiag.exe), it showed the product key. HOWEVER, It only showed PART of the product key. The Powershell program showed me the full product key. The problem is, the part of the product key that was shown to me by the Diagnostic tool was different then from the Powershell toolExample:Powershell product key: Y2DFC-W95TF-16R7R-KKFC3-6CV48Windows Diagnostic tool (MGADiag.exe) product key: XXXXX-XXXXX-B43GH-JS9X1-4MT8C(Those aren\’t the product keys the programs provided me, just an example of what it looked like)Now the question lies: If I deactivated my product key on my motherboard, then entered the product key on the new motherboard, would the Powershell product key work for sure?? Or would it be the other product key that I would never have any clue about as far as i would know?? Thanks in advance! 

Windows 10?How did you obtain WIN 10? Buy and install, or Upgrade from something else?If an Upgrade, you do not need the license key. As of the Anniversary release (1607), you can link your OS to a Microsoft account. It no longer follows the motherboard, but rather it follows you.Read more here:https://support.microsoft.com/en-us/help/20530/windows-10-reactivating-after-hardware-changehttp://www.windowscentral.com/how-re-activate-windows-10-after-hardware-changeThis usually works.
