Question Is it normal? it make loud noise while updating SMC?

I was updating my Macbook Air SMC to 1.8 today, when the white screen with the apple logo came up the macbook made really loud noise, sounds like the fan was running really hard. It stopped after the updating. Is it normal?

Yep, in fact it gives you a warning telling you it was going to do that before it does it
