For me the problem with BF4 crashing WAS mantle. I deleted all the files in my documents, essentially setting the game options back to the original ones (which includes Dx11) and my constant crashing problem was solved.
That being said, I also felt that mantle had times where the frame rate dropped even more then DX11, which is saying a lot considering this game is a framerate rollercoaster...
From my point of view this game only makes sense if you buy premium or find good servers and stick to vanilla.
Currently running EVERYTHING on my computer at stock clocks (like a boss) and haven't had issues since then. I am using the medium settings and trying to stay above 120 fps in hopes that someday I can run this game with light boost.
