Even the lowest powered modern processor has more than enough power to handle flac encoding. I just tried encoding a 3:30 wav file to flac at levels 3 and 8 on my 3 year old processor. Level 3 took about 3 seconds while level 8 took around 5 seconds.
At level 8 that's about 42 seconds of audio encoded every second. If you're encoding on the fly then the encoder will run faster than the rip so there will be literally zero difference in the time it takes between all compression levels.
The size gain may be marginal but if there is no time difference then the bang for your buck is at the highest compression.
