CM/SNS 2.31 breakpt: Cold Snap VS Deep Freeze

Wizard
I'm a little lower, AS wise than what's ideal for an a CM/SNS wiz.

At the 2.31 breakpoint, given 50+ base crit chance, I'd like to ask you all if I would likely benefit more from cold snap, despite the widely acknowledged fact DF is better when well geared?

Thanks for input!
at that breakpoint, go cold snap.

Thanks! Trying it now.
Your stats:

SO basically, at your current gear setup, activate DF will proc more FN cd than cold snap, but they are comparable

Interesting. I'll keep using deep freeze then, considering it also helps my other cooldowns.
