I've had great success with no-chill and have been making amazingly clear beers. I let it cool in a Win-pak and then use it as a fermenter. I would recommend a 90 minute boil and whirlpool though.

There's a 1300-post thread on this same forum about it, if you have a few hours to kill. Avoiding infection is important, but really only an issue below 130F or so. As long as you have your wort in a sealed and sanitized container, you're okay to let it sit for a day. The other important point is hopping. Once the boil is over, you'll get minimal added bitterness, but hops kept at high temps will continue to contribute flavors and aromas. I throw most of my hops in after the boil and let them steep to simulate the whirlpool additions a lot of pro brewers use.

In live in Australia and I can't really justify using the huge quantities of water it takes to cool down the wort. I just put it straight from the keggle to the plastic fermenter, put on the lid and put it in a bar fridge which i ferment in, then I pitch the yeast 24 hours later. There's no difference in quality what so ever and it's easier and less time consuming.
