The Flashback+ activation button is located in the lower right corner of the motherboard. The button in the back panel is for clearing the CMOS.
The Flashback USB port is the one odd port, unaligned with the rest.

As for the vrms it doesn't seem to effect much of anything - I'm getting good clocks out of my 1800X 4.1 Ghz + on stress tests .
The bugs are mostly related to AGESA itself.
MSI has neglected implementing up to date AGESA version in their bioses. Currently all of the bios builds available for X370 Titanium feature AGESA 220.127.116.11, which contains several bugs. All of the firmwares and microcodes in this AGESA version date back to the very beginning of January. They are bugged and definitely should no longer be used. All of the other major ODMs (ASRock, ASUS, Biostar Gigabyte) have released bioses which contain up to date software stack from AMD (AGESA 18.104.22.168 or 22.214.171.124).
The newest beta build for X370 Titanium was released yesterday (1.31) and it still uses the same 126.96.36.199 AGESA version
Also currently there is not a single bios build available to download for X370 Titanium as MSI apparently has pulled the 1.1 version from their support site.
AGESA 188.8.131.52 contains bugs which affect performance as well. For example the ST XFR in certain cases is being suddenly locked to MT XFR frequency (e.g. 3.7GHz instead of 4.1GHz on a 1800X).
X370 Titanium is not even remotely receiving the amount of support the customers are entitled to, especially in case of a high-end board.
Not to mention when the (over)pricing of the board is nothing short of a daylight robbery.
All of the AM4 motherboards are currently far from fully functional, however MSI is still in a class of it's own.
I agree the Titanium is overpriced , but I've not had any problems at all on the 1.1 bios that it shipped with.
I'm quite impressed with the XFR on mine - it's leaps and bounds better than any other AMD turbo function and I get 4.1 ghz at default settings.
I've heard of way more problems with Gigabyte gaming 5's and Asus Crosshairs than Titaniums - could be that they have sold more of them though . In fact , there's been so many problems reported with the Gigabyte that I'm about half scared to even try the K7 I have sitting here for fear it will kill my trident z's
I've posted screenshots running prime as well as IBT AVX at 4.1 ghz under 1.45 volts , that compares favorably with anything else I've seen ( at least on ambient cooling).
VRMs have stayed below 60C if monitoring software is to be believed. I don't think anyone is going to have problems with them short of extreme benching as long as they have some airflow over the socket area .
I've played about 4 hours of battlefield 1, ran half a dozen timespy and firestrike runs at 4150 mhz 1.432 volts LLC 3 with no problems this evening.
Trident's are at cl 14 3200 1T 1.35 volts , had the Fury running 1175 , 530 clobbering some 5 ghz 7700K timespy and firestrike scores - I'm very happy with the whole rig.Warning: Spoiler! (Click to show)
I'll give it a good wringing out - time will tell.
Edit: If you aren't getting 4.1ghz out of it as an XFR clock, you probably need to change your power plan to High performance In Windows- that will really screw with clocks and voltages if it is in balance mode.
That's what it should look like in hp mode
If it's in balance mode it wont show over 3800mhz that I've seen and it will be at 2200 or so most of the time with voltages all over the place.Edited by cssorkinman - 3/20/17 at 10:34pm
