I haven't tested flow regulators, as they are reputed to only help with transfering from one power setting to another and with power recovery from Beam Overload. At some point I will look into it.

The numbers you listed. Where are they from (e.g. tooltip, floating numbers)? I am not being snarky. When I ran my tests with ACT, I used the average damage, as it is per beam array. From my tests the minimum hit was 1 and the maximum hit was 1652. I find that the average damage to be a truer representation of performance.
