Sampling rate setting on Windows for an motherboard optical out to stereo receiver?

Tonight I'll be setting up the KEF Q150 speakers and Onkyo TX-8220 Stereo Receiver I bought. I will be using the fiber optic out on my motherboard to send the audio to the stereo receiver.

Is the DAC doing anything on the motherboard before it sends the audio out? I'm guessing not? Does the sampling rate of the motherboard not matter then?

What should I be setting my sampling rate as in Windows?

The stereo receiver is 20 Hz-20 kHz with a 192K/24 Bit DAC.

Does this mean I should choose 192,000 with 24bits as my sampling rate and bit depth?

This is an example of the options taken from another article.

Set to the highest your receiver could support. Since there is no auto-handshake using optical link. You will have to test it manually or read the spec. This affects the digital signal transfer between PC and receiver, not necessary related to the actual DAC capability in the receiver.
