No you shouldn't unless you have a good reason too. Bloat ware can be uninstalled. Clean Install will wipe out your support Folder there are software programs in that folder that can not be downloaded once you delete that folder there gone forever.
So is you do clean install be sure to
1. DO Back up the eSupport folder
2. DO Create a full complete Image of your Current OS SSD I and many others use Macrium Reflect other software will work too Main thing is to create a Complete Image of your OS SSD.
3. Everything you need to know about clean installing Windows 10 is in this thread https://rog.asus.com/forum/showthread.php?76993-Guide-How-to-install-windows-8-8-1-10-The-proper-way-(UEFI-based-installation)
4. Good Luck, and I think you'll find that your notebook will run pretty much the same as it does now. After you finally, get it configured correctly again.
5. Asus Support Downloads (http://support.asus.com/download/options.aspx?SLanguage=en&type=1)will have most of the latest drivers that are tested for you particular notebook. gps3dx keeps his thread up to date with links to the latest drivers.

It's really not that easy, and several people have benchmarked it. There isn't really any performance difference. It doesn't seem worth the time.

I almost did a clean install the day I received my laptop, but I like to play with it first and make sure it all works. Well, I never had to go back and do a clean install. It all worked and I didn't have any sort of OS related issues.

Not a good idea, there are so many people here who did so and regretted it. Your laptop is already plenty fast as it is, just swap the HDD with an SSD if you have the budget, that and a RAM upgrade is really all you need.

what is the pre-installed os?
If win 10, do not bother, if win8, then yes.
