Yes, you should.

It WILL make a difference, but with any mod, the computer doesn't know how to react until 5-6 starts after the battery is disconnected - so the difference sneaks up on you.

If you don't disconnect, it takes a long time for the computer to adapt, and you may get some errors no one will be able to explain, until you start going down the list . ..

Woe to him who builds his palace by unrighteousness,his upper rooms by injustice,making his countrymen work for nothing...Does it make you a king to have more and more cedar?Did not your father have food and drink?He did what was right and just,so all went well with him. He defended the cause of the poor and needy,and so all went well...But your eyes and your heart are set only on dishonest gain,on shedding innocent blood and on oppression and extortion. Jer 22:13, 15-17
