BEST ANSWER:

The difference between the RM series & RMi & RMx is that ONLY the RMi and RMx use completely Japanese capacitors and the RM also uses Taiwanese or Chinese, Corsair says that this is not impacting performance at all but Japanese capacitors have the reputation of being really good whereas the Taiwanese/Chinese have a lesser reputation. I have a RM550 (so with Taiwanese/Chinese capacitors) and it is running fine for almost 2 years already.

 

The difference between the RMi and RMx is that the RMi integrates Corsair Link functionality whereas the RMx series lacks this. The price of the RMx series is usually lower though. The performance should be exactly the same, the only difference being software monitoring/control through Corsair Link.
