is there a noticable gain to switch from 3/8" to 1/2" tubing?

As my question states, I ran a small loop with 3/8" tubing. I'm going to be upgrading the loop to include a triple rad instead of 2 120 rads, and I wanted to know if there is any reason to buy the bigger tubing?

This is my loop
pump: mcr355
swiftech northbridge cooler
apogee gtx cpu cooler
+ triple rad

Every time this subject has come up it is met with a resounding no. I don't know of any legit reason to use a larger size of tubing, though thicker walled tubing is generally shown to kink less easily.
