I have a $5K upgrade budget for my rig and can go Titan RTX SLI or W-3175X+Mobo... and I find myself more CPU limited than GPU nowadays... hmm lol. But I also figure that based on the longevity of Maxwell and Pascal, the Titans would be top end for ~2 years while the CPU market is moving more quickly.

Flashback USB slot is shown on pg 2-16 in your manual. DL the most recent bios, decompress it on a fat32 formatted stick, then with the psu on and the board power off (with or without a cpu in the socket), hold down the bios flaskback button on the back IO panel UNTIL in begins to flash. This will recover it.
Alternatively, you can (with the MB power drained and battery pulled) swap the two bios chips, then bios 2 - which now has the borked flash will automatically recover when you power the board up.
oh - drop HWi until it updates for that board.
I believe this is like the R6E in that the BIOS ROMs are no longer socketed. Soldered to the board which is a bummer. Swapping chips saved my butt several times and even buying a replacement chip for like $30 and plugging it into a universal programmer and dumping the BIOS into before plugging it in worked.

Im with you on fixing that borked ROM though. Even if its just putting what you already have that works on it for a back up. I tend to always leave one of the two as the last working bios before flashing a new one so theres always something to fall back on.

New W-3175X is taunting my nightmares where my wife files for a divorce! LOL At this point I think Id beotch slap myself for dumping $5K on just the MOBO and chip. Maybe next generation......

What did you think about this configuration (OMEGA):

- M.2_2 Socket 3
Samsung 960 EVO 1TB for OS (Windows 10)

- DIMM.2 2x Samsung 960 EVO 1TB for Games in RAID 0

I think a VROC key is not necessary and I will get a good performance for gaming.

Alternatively I can install 2x Intel 760p 2TB for OS and Gaming on the DIMM.2 with RAID 0 (VROC key needed)

Spoiler!
There's a workaround for that. I use the Reveltronics REVELPROG-IS serial programmer for EEPROM, FLASH, and FRAM myself, but there are other makes and models available.

I've been swapping 3 around between a dozen different boards. The sensors work on any board, but if you want to OC on the fly you will have to flash the OC Panel. There are 2 versions of the panel, just need ot know which one before.

Wonder where to get the cable? Asus doesn't show it on their site that I can find.

But probably no big deal, I've made it this far without ever using it, and generally don't mess around with the OC after I get a stable one going.

Read the manual 3 times and I still don't understand how to restore bios 1. I am afraid to use the flashback button as I don't want to kill bios 2.

Instead of using the thumb drive that came with the board, try putting just the re-named bios (download 0218, re-name it R6EO.CAP) on a FAT32 USB drive (the 0218 bios is on the support page, but you have to click See All Downloads to see it), nothing else. Switch back to the BIOS_1 position. Power off everything but the PSU, stick the USB drive that has nothing but the re-named bios on it in the USB slot designated for the bios update, press the button for the 3 seconds and see what happens.

I actually did that before I switched to bios 2. I have 0218 on a flash drive and renamed it as you mentioned. I pressed the bios button until it flashed and let go. The blue light stayed solid and never turned off (unless I didn't wait long enough).

OK, that's all I've got. Not sure what else to do, that's about the limit of my chops in this department.
