I'd swap maybe your cooler and power supply. Your setup is still just fine. There's no major upgrade over your parts, or you'll have to buy a new CPU/RAM/Motherboard combo, which'll cost you way over 400 pounds.

The CPU cooler is completely optional. If you're happy with your CPU thermals, don't change it. The VS series PSU from Corsair simply isn't good. The parts used in that PSU are of low quality. It has a 80+ certification, but not even Bronze.

Check the PSU Tier list if you're interested: https://linustechtips.com/main/topic/986897-psu-tier-list-30/

I'd upgrade ram to 16GB and get more SSD storage.
Should have said, I have a 2tb ssd in there too.

What RAM is worth it. One's I am currently looking at are -
