i did the 5x4 for awhile and i liked it alot.
why are you deloading though if your still hitting pr's?
As far as i am aware it is at 5 weeks for a reason if your hitting PR's or not mate. It won't make you come back a week later weaker.
The aim of the deload week is to back off a little and work a slightly different aspect of growth that occurs when the load or intensity is lighter and requires fatigue to really kick in, while giving your connective tissue and joints time to adapt to the previous weeks (connective tissue adapts at a far slower rate than muscle tissue).
