Trading Shimano 105 Compact for FSA SL-K

Hey guys! So I am building up my carbon road bike right now for race season and I have a decision to make. Right now I have a Shimano 105 5700 165mm compact crankset and I want to trade/sell it away for a standard one. Someone offered me a FSA SLK Crankset 170mm Standard 53/39t crankset trade for my 105s AND I add 40 on top. Do you guys think its a fair trade? Why and why not? I heard some negative things about the FSA Cranks but also some positive ones. Any input helps! The pictures below are 105s that I will be trading for the FSA's in the exact same model.

Yes it is my first race season aha. Yea a lot of people have been telling me the trade is a bad idea since the FSA has a lot of problems with this cranks.

If we're talking your current allez, I would worry about upgrading to a standard double groupset and getting longer cranks
