✔ Best Answer

If I'm reading the document right, you're looking at an environmental range of 5°C (41°F) at the low end, and an upper range that starts at 45°C (113°F). Ignoring condensation and other outside-y issues, you might be able to get away with sub-freezing temperatures if you leave the machine on all the time, and you have variable speed case fans.

Radical temperature changes will over time stress the solder joints. It would be best to have a space heater to clip off the extreme low end. Even a light bulb in a small area can make a difference.
