that maybe I'd find it.
399 revealed nothing but I found 4 instances of 400 or 40 9C 00 00.
I looked through xbios editor hex editor on 3 different bios,
the backup of origional I made
an 750 memory clocked version
and an 810 memory clocked version
all of which I made.

1 is at the end of 0x6DD0 to begining of 0x6DF0
2 is near middle of 0xAFE0
3 is at begining of 0xAFF0
4th is at end of 0xED20

Was wondering if these could possiably be settings for throttling?
I havent changed them, just looking at possibilities.
the one at ED20 is your problem ! you have the throttle speed set at 400MHz ! So all that is happening, is during a high stress/temp time in game, the throttling function is being triggered ! Set it to whatever your 3D speed is, and it won't throttle core speed down ! However it is probably only happening because your card was either overclocked too far or just overheating at the time it triggered ?
