Just a short update before work: my PC did the next rebuild fine and idled peacefully throught the night.

I guess that is the more friendly version of a bluescreen in Win10. Never had that before. The eventual freeze aside (once every some days) the system is running pretty awesome. Does Win10 have a problem with S/W raid?
Also I noted that during post the HDD led would flash slowly for some seconds. I have seen this before, but can't say why/when. Does the Bios have a problem with S/W raid?
In any way, I will try "hardware" (Intel Rapid Storage) raid now, as I am already on the Intel controller. Wanted to do so from the start, but I had wantet to reserve one Sata Express port for a USB 3.1 front panel then (which I haven't bought, yet).
EDIT: Having had this frequent rebuild on Win7 already, and the flashing HDD led on post... I am tempted to believe that either Bios or Z170 PCH have a serious issue with S/W raided drives.
OR it is really the PSU: I had the clicking and the blinking from here:
