I also like that recipe. I consumed so much caterium that the pure node i had available wasn't enough. That recipe allowed me to increase the amount of quickwire I could feed to my machines.
Regarding the new recipe, it is too much trouble to rearrange my factory to use that recipe, but is it really that good? you need more room to make that crystal oscillator. how much of a difference is it to the rubber computer recipe?.
