Default Best temperature to dry hopp at?

What is the best temperature to dry hop at. Searching the net I seem to get a differing opinion. Do you dry hop at a warmer temp say 20-22C for better rate of extraction? or do you dry hop at a cooler temp say 18-19C to limit the loss of aroma through escaping CO2?

I dry hop at fermentation temps around 66-67F (19-20 C)

I dry hop at whatever the temp is at the point it's @ FG & settle out clear or slightly misty. That's the more important aspect of it. you don't want the hop oils to coat stuff in suspension & sink to the bottom with them. That & time are more important,imo.

I dry hop in kegs in the fridge while the keg carbonates, so for me it's around 37F.
