BF4 Sniper Control

BF4 is plagued with too many snipers, I’m sure everyone will agree. In this video I attempt to show that one well placed sniper can control the opposing teams sniper forces, and hopefully keep the game a little more enjoyable for your team. You should always try to play the objectives…camping does not usually help your team, and this is a team game. Played right, the Recon class can be very effective at attacking the objectives, and that is how I like to play most of the time. This video is NOT how I normally play the game.

This is test footage utilizing my new Asus GTX 770 and the shadowplay video capture that is included with this card. So far I am really liking how it works and the video it returns is high quality. I have had some issues however, rendering and editing the files. Going to take a bit to figure out the best setting to make video editing in the future easier.

Custom router Plate

Before I could begin my next project, I needed to fabricate a router table. You can buy these for a couple hundred bucks, But a custom built one will be more sturdy and last longer. Plus it will be built to my specs and probably cost less.

I started with a piece of 0.060″ aluminum and created a base plate to attach the router. This can then be flipped and attached to a table top to expose the router bit. You need to countersink the entire plate area so that your work piece will float across the table top smoothly. The makes the router much more versatile for small pieces and easier to use.

Next upgrade will be some channels with T-nuts for an adjustable fence.

Stress testing Day #1

Over clocking is actually much easier than I first thought. Its just time consuming. Change a number and stress test, change a number and stress test, repeat, repeat, repeat. I am stable at 3.63Ghz right now but the temperatures are rising quickly. With a max temp of 62C, I think I want to keep a 10% margin as my absolute max = 56C will be my target max temp during a long term stress test of 12-24 hours. Here are the following settings I have been using:

Factory settings @ 3.3Ghz

FSB = 200
X 16.5
Vcore = 1.3000v
idle = 22c
average (fan lo) = 41c
average (fan hi) = 37c
max (fan low) = 43C

Test 1 @ 3.39Ghz Stable 1 hour

FSB = 205
X 16.5
Vcore = 1.3000v
idle = 21c
max (fan hi)= 38
Test 2 @ 3.48Ghz Stable 1 hour

FSB = 210
X 16.5
Vcore = 1.3000v
idle = 23c
average (fan lo) = 43c
max = 45c

Test 3 @ 3.56Ghz Stable 52 minutes

FSB = 215
X 16.5
VID = 1.3000v
idle = 22c
average (fan lo) = 42c
max = 47c

Core 5 error = tweaked Vcore up 0.00625v in the BIOS

Test 4 @ 3.56Ghz

FSB = 215
X 16.5
Vcore = 1.300v
idle =
average (fan lo) = 45c
max = 47c

BFBC@ test run 1 hour not faults and 60fps

Tweaked the Vcore up to 1.3500v in the BIOS

Test 5 @ 3.63Ghz

FSB = 225
X 16.5
Vcore = 1.312v
idle = 20
average (fan lo) = 45c
max = 47c
