AWESOME Sink[edit | edit source]

 Crystal Oscillator can be sunk into the AWESOME Sink.png AWESOME Sink to yield 3 072 points.

Tips[edit | edit source]

  • It is advised to automate Crystal Oscillators early as they are required in the most of M.A.M. Quartz Research.
  • Alternate recipes involving Crystal Oscillators can be inefficient due to the rarity of Raw Quartz. Nuclear fuel unit is the exception, since it saves on uranium which is rarer than quartz.
