How long can you let chicken stock cool for at room temperature before refrigerating?

I just made a big batch of chicken stock on my fancy new induction stove and let it simmer overnight. Imagine my annoyance when I woke up and found that the stove automatically turns itself off if it detects no activity for a long time. In the future I'm going to have to either babysit it all day or get a stock pot. Anyway I have no idea what time between midnight and 7 AM it turned off, but when I woke up at 7 it was still kind of warm. Not hot anymore, but not totally room temperature either. It sat there cooling for a good while. I know bacteria grow fast in warm stock, and I tend not to take chances. I strained and refrigerated it right away but don't know if it's good.... what should I do, eat it or toss it? Thanks....

I read an earlier post about "bone broth spoiled after a night in room temperature", and there wasn't a consensus.... This is a bit less controversial since it started out hot, but still I don't know...
