Wish I knew what a British Siren sounds like

Since it is coming from the case, I suspect it is a physical problem, where something is rubbing.

Any chance you have a stethoscope? It is very difficult to figure out what is making a noice inside a case at times, so I use an old stethoscope that I can place on parts directly to isolate sound

My gut tells me a bearing is going out on a fan....

I believe this two-tone sound is a warning from the system's BIOS that an overheating problem has been detected.

Go into the BIOS and see if the over-tempearture limits can be set. The CPU temp limit should be set to 65C. Perhaps it is now set too low. Worse would be if the CPU is heating up past 65C.

If so then clean any dust out from the fan and heatsink with brush.

Also, the heatsink-to-CPU contact area may need to be cleaned and new thermal compound applied.
