I have been working out extremely hard at the gym, taking the Cellucore testosterone, M5 Extreme and Recovery all as a stack. I have gained a ton of muscle. I do not much much fat on me, but after I cycle through the stack I want to cut the fat so I look ripped for the summer.
What is the best way to get rid of that last bit of fat to really show my muscle? Just tons of cardio?

I have myself set up on a pretty good diet now that I continue to tweak. I have 3.5 weeks left on my cycle of the testosterone, would it be detrimental to start ramping up on the cardio during those 3.5 weeks or just worry about bulking up during those 3.5 weeks and then focus on the cardio?
Ideally I want to put on as much muscle as possible over those 3.5 weeks and be cut up for the summer.

For example: Benching 170 x 6, stick to the 170 and work up to 10-12 reps and then increase weight sticking to 10-12 reps
or Drop the weight to get to 10-12 reps
For example: Benching 170 x 6, drop to 155 to be able to do 10-12 reps and then increase weight sticking to 10-12 reps?
Which is the best way to make that transition?

Don't do low reps/low weight, as that's going to put no strain on your muscles. A very basic principle everyone should know is that in order to progress, you need to overload your muscles.
You should still aim for strength. Personally, I start off within the rep range of 4-8, then slowly higher the amount of reps, until I reach failure; for instance: 6, 6, 10, 15, failure. All in all, just keep aiming for strength. Your training doesn't need to really change much at all. You're trying to retain as much muscle as possible whilst cutting, so by doing a low rep/low weight scheme you're going to see reversibility kick in quickly.
