plenty of software based raid solutions so that your motherboard wont matter,if you running windows you're kinda stuck with the windows storage spaces or maybe find a 3rd party program.
most serious home storage people seem to like running a separate machine with a linux based OS like freenas etc and run a zfs software raid.

Do You intend to boot off this RAID array or is it just for Storage?

You can't boot from RAID on a B250F Gaming. Software RAID only.

Unfortunately you would need to add a Raid card to that Mobo in order to boot off of it. Your best bet would be to add an SSD to your setup, boot to that, and then Use Windows Raid for your HDD's. That way you get the best of both worlds, a fast and snappy system, with your large storage array. There are Raid cards that can be had for around $90 or so that will do what you want, but if we are talking about an HDD Raid (so old school hard drives not SSDs) then you are much better off just booting from a single SSD and then using Windows to Raid the system. (Intel's Raid is junk anyway, wouldn't wish that on my worst enemy.)

EDIT: On the plus side, you can do RAID 10 Easy with Windows Software Raid...(Just can't boot from it)
