No need for sub-zero temp for overclocking.

It's about saving on electricity,,,

Why do you give away your valuable heat?  I moved my mining farm to the Antarctica Research station.  I collect revenue from both Bitcoins and heat output. Smiley

It seems grue's hypothesis is that #3 (20° drop) allows #4 (overclock to the max), enabling #6 (profit). However, overclocked mining is less efficient in terms of hashes per watt, and, if you are wasting the heat output that could be heating your house, is pointless when it costs more in overclocked electricity than is earned in additional bitcoins.

well the internet covers the whole world - it is both
maybe
"it's winter in the northern hemisphere, so you know what that means..."
would have been a better title

http://www.bom.gov.au/wa/forecasts/perth.shtml certainly says it is NOT winter...
