If it is a retail license, no, any motherboard will be fine.
If it is an OEM license, you will likely have to replace with same model unless Microsoft shows you a little leeway. I have heard they will, at times, depending on how you plead your case and who you talk to.
Motherboard models don't stay around forever, so they may well cut you some slack if that model is no longer available--motherboards do fail and they know it.
