When to break Tier set bonus

I apologize if this has been covered, but I couldn't find the information anywhere so I figured I'd register and start a topic. I'm just looking for some feedback on at what point it is acceptable to break a set bonus for higher ilevel gear. For instance, I'm running the tier-14 4 pc set bonus on my Frost Mage. I keep getting higher ilevel pieces of gear from ToT lfr, but I just toss them in the bank because I don't want to lose the set bonus. AMR agrees with that response, but it seems to me that if I were to replace only two pieces (retain the 2 pc set bonus) with higher level gear, the increased stats would be more beneficial. My thinking behind this is that a passive increase would be better than one that has a cooldown. It appears as though I'm wrong in this thinking, but I just can't seem to find anything on it...thoughts?

I replaced my 4set t14 with 2set t15 (so 2set t14 + 2set t15).

but i wouldnt break the 4set for plain 502 gear, only tier.

I personally think that the frost 4-set T14 might come to be useful on things other than raiding because of that huge Icy Veins cooldown reduction which is quite nice in solo'ing some stuff.

But I guess you really should break the set bonus only when you can put the bonus from T15.

I went 4-set T14 -> 2-set T14+2set T15 -> 4-set T15.

Was frustrating to not use higher ilvl pieces, but I used AskMrRobot to track it. Robot does account for set bonuses. It's not precise though, so once every while I was running Simulationcraft to verify that it's not time yet to break the set bonus.
