Assuming you're playing on a recent version, the main thing the ring of frost does is brand your attacks with cold damage, which means that monsters that don't resist cold will take extra damage. What weapon are you using right now? The bigger the dice, the better the brand will be. Of course, as you get deeper into the dungeon, more monsters will resist cold.

Basically this is a damage tradeoff, between the occasional extra damage vs. non-cold-resistant monsters, and the guaranteed extra damage from the Ring of Strength. +4 Strength will also make it harder for you to get slowed by your burden, though, which is definitely something to keep in mind. Moving 10% faster than your enemy means you deal 10% more damage, remember.
