Gravel Tire Recommendations (Big Tire Clearance)

I have a new bike build, converting a hardtail 29er to a rigid fork, drop bar gravel bike. I am looking for recommendations for the fastest tire that is 45mm-50mm (1.77"-2.0"). I have clearance for 2.3" but I don’t feel the need to go that big. I’m a bigger rider at 230lbs (104.3kg), so I feel a larger volume tire would be to my advantage.

Thanks for your help!
