Depends a lot on your line system, if the pipe from the compressor tank to the hose pressure regulator is short or for other reasons has little cooling capacity then yes just mount it close to the tank. If however the piping from the tank to the regulator is already capable of cooling the air a significant amount then a downstream location will reduce the amount of heat the unit has to remove.
