If you remove all the current drives from the current controller and
move them to some other controller probably not. Otherwise you may
have to touch your grub setup and your /etc/fstab because the system
may see the drive in a different order. A live cd would probably be
needed to fix this. And no you would definitively not need to
reinstall for that reason.
