Either specify the plot range (PlotRange -> {}) or specify PlotRangePadding -> Scaled[0]

Good luck,

The origin (0, 0) is set in and appears at the first tick on the horizontal and vertical axis. Likewise, the outermost point, (8, 64) in my example here, is not coincident with the top-right corner of the frame. Is there any way that I can get a frame to lie on top of the axes?
