Here is my thought process:
How is troop parity on the board?Let's say that I'm playing an SoC-type game. In the first round of cashes I always wait for the 5th card to cash, and I always try for it. There is rarely any danger or incentive to cash early here, because we're not up to replacement value yet.
Are there any stragglers or hanging victims?
Has the cash reached replacement level yet?
Are you being targeted?
Would another card make you a target?
Do you have a target?
Does the card sequence favor you, your target, or the person hunting you?
Can someone take you out and recash? What if you take another card? What if you cash in?
Once the cash value passes 20, the decisions get a little harder. We're still not to replacement value yet, but if someone wanted to do a murder-suicide situation (Terminator vs high ranks happens often) it could be done. Here I almost always cash as soon as I have a set. Better to have the troops on the board and lighten my hand than hold out for a potential home run.
It boils down to evaluating your position and weighing the risk/reward of holding, collecting another card, or cashing.
