If you can get the 3/8" over the 1/2" barbs, go for it. Very minimal losses over 7/16".

If you're really bored, you can check THIS out, a test that was done a couple years ago. But the final conclusions is: Minimal loss to flow rate, and even smaller loss to cooling ability. As much as I love it myself, 1/2" tubing is highly overrated in the average watercooling system these days.
