SilverStone introduced the multi-utility FP56 front-panel. Built for 5.25-inch drive bays, the panel gives you room for two 2.5-inch drives, a multi-format card reader, three USB 3.0 SuperSpeed ports, and a high-current USB 3.0 port for quickly charging your gadgets. The FP56 draws power from a standard 4-pin Molex plug, and connectivity from a standard USB 3.0 front-panel header. The card reader supports various generations and form-factors of SD, MemoryStick, xD, and CompactFlash cards. Its rear portion has mount-holes for two 2.5-inch drives stacked alongside each other. To blend with your case, you can use any of the black, white, and silver bezels included. SilverStone didn't announce pricing or availability.
