Are the cooler and case things you have on hand? Both look pretty underwhelming.

Yes cooler and case are ones I have on hand, cooler isn't great but the case is fine.

It's a much better choice than the RM.

What makes it so much better?

You might want to consider a 2x16GB memory kit if you have any expectation of manipulating 4K content.

I plan on later doing 4x8 as afaik the new Ryzen CPUs take advantage of having 4 sticks. I assume that'd also be fine for 4k though?

Better quality components, better electrical efficiency, longer warranty.

80+ ratings certify electrical efficiency. Not quality.

I've heard that the gold & platinum efficiencies are not really that much different. Is that true?

On the corsair one too there is a 10 year warranty which seems plenty to me.

There is not a big efficiency difference. But given that according to pcoartpicker the Seasonic Prime unit is less expensive, has a twelve year warranty, uses better components, and has superb power delivery you should give it serious consideration.

I was able to get the RM from a local hardware store brand new for around £80 so for me the price wasn't really a factor luckily. 

I've had a Corsair PSU for the last 4 or so years with no problems so hopefully this time around it'll have a pristine record again.
