I have a 2 socket machine, so when I assign cores I pick 2 soeckets and 1, 2, or 3 cores per socket

This always results in an even amount of cores allocated

I want to try an odd number of cores

Since I have 2 physical cores, If I allocate with one core and 5 cores, will that work efficiently

Anything I have to look out for

Yes, that will work efficiently.

Unless you have a specific license requirement for Cores, I would stick with just adding Sockets.
