SilverStone has provided us with another great product. It goes by the code name FP32-E. The FP32-E is a USB 3.0 kit. It can be installed in a 3.5” drive bay, and is available in both silver and a black finish. The FP32-E features four USB 3.0 ports and High Definition Audio (HD Audio) ports; the FP32-E is an excellent add-on or upgrade for any aluminum case.
The FP32-E comes in a smaller compact box that holds everything you need. All that is included in the box is the 3.5” mount and the cables attached, very minimal but that is all you need. It doesn’t come with installation screws, but it most cases the're not needed due to the tool less design. Now is a great time to take a closer look at the FP32-E.

Performance wise it’s about the same as your typical USB 3.0 port, so don’t be expecting higher overall transfer speeds. This just allows you to add additional USB ports to your computer and to also allow for easy access. All in all the FP32-E is an excellent product. The additional HD audio ports are also a major plus; this allows you to enjoy the latest HD audio while listening to music or playing games.
The SilverStone FP32-E is a great device that allows you to expand your computers USB 3.0 ports and also expand your audio options. However, most motherboards only come with a single USB 3.0 port so you will really only get two extra ports instead of the included four.
