My System Specs

The ID is the inner wall so there would be absolutely no difference between 3/8"ID with either 5/8 or 1/2" OD tubing other than how it reacts to bends in the loop.

As has been suggested above, going to 1/2" vrs 3/8" ID is more for asthetics than anything else, however if you plan a complicated loop, 3/8" is a hell of a lot easier to work with once space becomes an issue.
