You're right about misinformation. PCI-express is connected to Northbridge a.k.a. fastest bus available. SATA however connects to Southbridge.

What the poster probably meant is the cheesegrater has integrated SATA drive bays which makes it "internal" and connecting more storage via PCI-express seems to be "external". Tehcnically however it is just the opposite.
What we do in life, echoes in eternity.
