I'm troubleshooting a computer and have come across a post code not listed on Gigabyte's website. The board ships with an AMI BIOS meaning the post codes should be in accordance with this chart
2. AMI BIOS
1 short beep :Memory Error
2 short beep:Memory parity check error.
3 short beep :basic memory 64K address check error
4 short beep :Real Time Clock malfunction .
5 short beep :CPU error
6 short beep:Keyboard error
7 short beep :CPU interruption error
8 short beep:Graphic card error
9 short beep :Memory error
10 short beep :CMOS error
11 short beep :CPU cache memory malfunction

But it sounds like this

Initially I thought the issue was a bad PSU and have since gotten a new one but that seems not to be the issue. I had come to this conclusion using the AWARD BIOS post table below (Not knowing I had an AMI BIOS). The issue arises through the fact that the post code the motherboard makes is not listed in either section of the table (AMI or AWARD)

AWARD BIOS
1short beep :System normal
2 short beep :CMOS Error
1 long beep and 1 short beep:Memory error
1 long beep and 2 short beep:Graphic card error
1 long beep and 3 short beep :AGP error
1 long beep and 9 short beep :Memory Error
Continuous long beep :Memory not correctly installed
Continuous short beep :Power supply unit failed

I have tested the system with and without the RAM installed and on different known good PSUs
The specs of the machine are as follows:
CPU: i5-4460
MOBO: GA-H81M-S2H
RAM: 4GB DDR3 Crutial @ 1600 MHz

Has anyone had a similar issue or could push me in the right direction?
Thanks,
Max

Edit 1: I have solved this by wiping some gunk off of the bottom of the CPU and reseating it
