Try dropping the memory multiplier. The BadAxe wasn't really a great overclocker...
Once again...

The multiplier is disabled on these boards default is x9. This cant be changed

Here is an old guide of LR using an original Bad Axe to OC a E6300. I guess the procedure would be pretty much the same with the Bad Axe 2.

You might need to do a conductive ink mod...
