I wonder if it's because he has 3 sticks of RAM?
That board is not known for it's massive overclocks, and maybe it is having trouble setting the memory speed because of all the RAM?
Forget what CPUz says for the ratio, does it show the speed of the RAM being set to what you enter in BIOS? If you set the RAM to 500 in BIOS but CPU-Z says it is running slower than that, then it isn't making the change in BIOS.
I would maybe try using only a single stick of RAM and seeing if it will change the RAM speed for you then. If so, then add another stick and see if it will still do it. Then the 3rd stick and see, maybe that's the trouble.
Just an idea.
