Exceeding the soft cap of 125 is merely for the weapon drain, thus keeping more of your weapons at the 125 weapon power damage modifier.

And, I believe someone said, prior to Season 6, that the hard cap (which was at 135, then 150) has been removed.
Looking only at 2 beams:

I tend to agree with you that 125 looks to be the hard cap. EPTW I has a 10% damage increase for 5 seconds as a modifier. It should result in a 1.6% damage increase over time from just the buff. The total DPS increase from FAW II chaining to FAW II chaining with EPTW I chaining is 4.5%. The remaining 2.9% appears to come from holding the power up at 125. From formulas provided before I estimated that if there was a hard cap above 125 the power value would have had to be about 129. The 4 power level difference is more likely coming from the drop of power below 125 without EPTW I.
