Looking to get opinions on these two. This will be for my first build, and they were well within my price range, and have high ratings.

This is my case: http://pcpartpicker.com/part/xigmatek-case-ccm35abxu01

Also my CPU: http://pcpartpicker.com/part/intel-cpu-bx80646e31231v3

It says it comes with a cooler, but I'm wondering if an aftermarket cooler would be a better choice.

If you can't afford a 212 EVO, then I would go for the CM one.

Use the included stock cooler until budget permits use of Cooler Master Hyper 212 Evo or similar.

212 EVO is much more better than these.
