PSU with single-multi rail switch: what happens if toggled while PC running (on max load)?

all in the question

I'm like REALLY curious cause I've got that switch on my Corsair which been set to single rail (I know multi is safer but w/e) and I wanna know, what happens if that switch is accidentally pressed while PC is running?

(say while tinkering inside the PC while it's on)

more so if PC is running at heavy load say Prime95+Furmark?

what's the worse that can happen? physically damage to PSU and/or PC components?
or just software symptoms (BSOD)?

no one on the web asked that question before yet it seems important so here it is
