Anyone seeing benefits using straps? (Like 125, 166 etc.)

I don't. In fact I get less stable using anything but 100 strap.

There are some anecdotal reports on the web flying around where people claiming that higher straps but lower multi *would* mean better overclocks.

There was a time where overclocking the FSB was preferred over the Multi. As, when you overclock the FSB, you overclock everything attached to that bus.

Those days are long gone...

Now the only reason to use different straps is for Memory. Some kits need the 125 strap to reach their rated speeds.
