I've found after flashing a BIOS or installing Nvidia drivers the max power limit is much lower than it should be and this is the fix.
You can find your max TDP in the official BIOS's link.
Link to XOC no power limit BIOS. You don't need to run the power limit .bat file with this BIOS.

BIOS's to flash.
Best BIOS Collection are the all the BIOS's I tested that give decent results. XOC is power limit free BIOS developed for L2N, still working on our FE's and other cards though.
Renamed by card they come from for clarification with power limit wattage of each one in the name.
Added the .bat files needed to run as Admin after each flash.
Important! Don't flash the HOF or MSI Lightning Z BIOS's or any BIOS that uses three power connectors.
They'll brick your card and unless you have a spare card or iGPU you won't be able to flash it back. Also two eight pin power connector Kingpin BIOS will brick your card.
Here's how to do it
