My System Specs

Has anyone heard of a 3/8" barb to 1/2" adapter ?
How are you going to setup your loop? For just the physical connection (not completely sure what effect restricting only a portion of the loop to 3/8 tubing will have) all you'll need is two more 3/8' barbs for whatever components are upstream/downstream from the chipset block.

Another solution would be a single pump / dual loop 5 1/4 bay res like the primochill I have on my Lvl10 GT. You'd still need a couple of 3/8" barbs for the chipset loop, but the rest of the loop could then run off of your 1/2" setup.
