Might be power supply fan or could even be a cable or something that got in one of the fans way.

Yea most of the time that drilling sound is a fan hitting something. Those are really the only moving parts in the case that would give off a sound resembling any kind of drilling noise. My suggestion would be to go in and check your fans and clear them of anything that might be touching them. Even close things can be touching once the fan is turned on.
Life is like a womens underware. Hard as hell to get into, but fun as sin once you do.

if it is a fan , it will not get better, it will get worst till it stops turning and if it is your processor fan, you could lose your Processor. If the noise is constant you can open up your pc and momentarily stop each fan with a pencil, finding the one that makes the noise.
