    Is your HP the one with 3rd Gen Intel CPU?
    Does it show all connected device in the audio options like below?

    Above (Windows 10, Ryzen 3000 series Lenovo SFF): Speakers & Headphones share the same channel '3'. In newer devices with correct audio driver, you can switch between them even if they share the same channel. I guess this is what you're expecting, right?
    This sound like the behavior of a simple switch, so it could be due to hardware limitation.
    If this is the case, then it is the same issue with my older 2010 PC, which I resorted to some workarounds:
    1. Used a cheap audio jack extension cable so that it'll be nearer and easier to plug-n-unplug between speakers & heaphones...😝 lol
    2. Then I bought a better speaker system with a headphone jack in the main satellite unit.
    3. Later I saved up and managed to buy my first monitor with HDMI input & audio jack(5 years old BenQ in above picture), so headphones plugged to front panel headphone jack and speaker system plugged to monitor's audio jack. This way I was finally able to switch between them using software like above picture.
    I hope you can find a solution that works for you.

    no idea about it ... should test it to see if it works.  When I checked the x6 was close to 50$ cad and the b95 was about 15$ cad so I did not want to risk buying a 50$ cpu that might not work on my motherboard.  If the x6 had been also 15$ I would have tried it.

    I was afraid that the hp being a business computer it might restrict cpu support to business ones only.  I checked the compatibility list on hp and the b95 was the most powerful it would be compatible with but when I checked the chipset compatibility list the phenom2 x6 was in there so I went the safe way and got the b95.  It's a good cpu and does what I want really well.  Paired with an ssd the system is quite fast for web browsing and youtube stuff.

    Also make sure ur psu can handle it. If u got it for $5 chances are the psu might not work at all or can’t support an upgrade.

    I have a similar ssf hp that came with an athlon 2 x2 b24 cpu ... I swapped it for a phenom 2 x4 b95 and it work really good for the 15 $ I spent.  I was afraid of compatibility issue with the phenom 2 x6 that's why I went with the b95 instead.

    Yup if the max limit on the mobo is 95w it should be perfectly fine with a 95w cpu. Basically you shouldn’t have problems unless you exceed the limit by a significant amount although on some motherboards u can actually exceed the rates tdp limit by 15W pretty. You might want to consider a better motherboard too if you can afford it. You can get an am4 motherboard for very cheap even if you buy it new and even less(<$30) if you opt for something used. If you indeed do so I will recommend that you change your CPU choice to a Ryzen 5 1600 AF which is almost 4x faster then the phantom which you could probably get for $<60 used and $85 brand new(comes with a cooler too).

    How much ram does it have? I'm assuming it does not come with dedicated graphics. And how much are you looking to spend?
