    I am ready to clean install my Win 8 Pro. The original was the kms activation..then I had a free WMC key and so I'm activated forever and not just the 180 day thing. My question is..Do I just install via KMS again and then add my key like before and I'm ok again or do i need to do something further? Thanks.

    After MS closed the little loophole, you might be able to add the WMC to that install, but no chance activating it online. Not shure if the phone activation still works.
    As there is a glitch in KMS activation method, MTK is able to activate it for 30 days (in opposite to the normal 180 days). If the AutoKMS task is installed, it will be reactivated once daily and at every system startup.

    Edit: You can also try reinstalling license backup via ATM, if done before.
