With 5bb its horrible to set up any edge at all cuz ur basically gambling any edges with 1 chips earned have to take it, even spots that are slightly negative you have to take it like where you´re UTG and the blinds are about to go up and you´re also about to hit the blinds in the next hand, taking slightly -cEV plays are considered ok cuz of the fold equity we´re loosing in future hands.
With 12bb or more i would say it depends on the situation but basically anything above half a small blind its acceptable.
Also remember that these days turbos SNGs are getting tougher and tougher increasing their variance and reducing the amount of profit available for us to gain so we are force to take smaller edges everytime.
