It doesn't matter where you clip MF or MFI, unless you have a proc or will lose a proc. For example, if you have an UVLS proc, you should try and recast MFI before that proc fall off. If this means it only ticked once since you cast it last, you will gain an aditional crit tick. Otherwise, you can clip it after one tick, or two. The only thing that'll change is, your button to cast MF/MFI will wear out sooner and you spend more mana. No procs means no change in damage.
As far as clipping MFI goes, you should clip it to recast anything that has a higher DPET than MFI has. Trying to recast your dots to make sure you don't have to recast them during will raise DPS as well, but if MB comes off CD, you should cast it straight away.
