Couldn't you get a thread adapter like this ... http://www.aquatuning.co.uk/product_info.php/info/p1336_reducing-socket-G1-2-to-G1-4-inner-thread.html

7/16 tubing fits nice and snug on 1/2" barbs.

You can probably squeeze the tubing on there. Some people do that so they don't need hose clamps because it's snug enough on its own. (I would still use hose clamps though.)
This makes it a little more likely to rupture though. I'd just get new fittings. But that's just me.
Also, if you ever remove the tubing from the barb, it may tear. Something to keep in mind.

just grab two 7/16 compression's if that's what you already have, I wouldn't use 7/16 tube on 1/2 you could get it on but the compression wouldn't secure it due to it's size (chances of a leak would be very probable).

What kind of water block comes with built in compression fittings? Chances are it has G1/4" ports like every other water block out there so you can change the fittings.

You should be able to change them to 7/16" compressions. I agree with mr. biggums, I would only ever use the correct size compression fittings for the size of tube. The tube needs to fit nicely on the barb and the collar needs to hold it tight.

With barbs you can do 7/16" tube on 1/2" fittings but compressions are a different story.
