Troubles intonating the low B on my 7-string

The guitar is an RG2027 stringed with Ernie Balls: a Hybrid slinkys set (009-011-016-026-036-046) with an added 056 (Ernie too) as the low B. Standard tuning.
I can intonate all the upper 6 strings perfectly, but I have troubles with the low B. The 12th fret is really flat (30 cents) even with the saddle maxed toward the neck. What should I do?
Please help!

The culprit was a faulty low-B string. Just changed it with a D'Addario of the same gauge and now, with minor corrections, the low B is in tune and ready to rock!
BTW, looks like that one can't trust even brand new strings....
