Nothing, you will have a stock rom with a stock kernel.
Or, in the worst case scenario, the world will cease to be.

Odin won't check pre-existing binaries on your device, instead it will do everything on your computer. MD5 checks, certificate checks, etc. If it fails the check (aka. bad download) then it would trip your KNOX and you may have a brick.
Problem with ROMs? Try this. Still no? Ask me on Google+!
Root/TWRP/Kernel/ROM/Downgradable and KNOX 0x0 on N900W8? My guide.

Phone: Note 3 - Rogers SM-N900W8
C-RoM v7.1, Temasek v3.76, TWRP 2.7.1, NA2 BL, NB7 Modem, KNOX 0x0

Tablet: Nexus 7 (2012)
PA 4.2 Beta 2, TWRP 2.7, Multiboot - UbTouch, Ub13.10, PA, CM11
