I know that if I root my Note 3, that will trip Knox. Personally I am prepared to risk that.But reading odd bits here and there I have heard mention of e-fuse?
And that this can mess up the hardware?

Is that correct? And what triggers it?

Nothing will affect your hardware, rooted my phone in the first day.

Just read root/rom threads for your device carefully and follow all instructions to avoid any hard or soft brick.

Also rooted my Note 3 the first day. Tripped knox and never looked back. I would also suggest to root using cf-autoroot via Odin mode. Just search for it in the forums. Worked for me every time. Also if you like to install custom ROM so that you can use your Note 3 to its full potential.

Use kingo root it will not trigger knox. But you cant flash a custom recovery that will trigger knox. But rooting with kingo you can still mod your phone to the fullest.

I agree with the kingo advice. I used it and it's a one click easy root. If you want recovery I'd recommend safe strap. Neither of these recommendations will trip knox

Kingo is suspect. Lots of talk about why it communicates data back to some mystery Chinese server
