They are used to cool the CPU because they do tend to generate heat... you should take some time and by a book on the basics of computers it may help you out if you want to continue to get into this stuff, otherwise just keep asking teh questions. the termal pase is used when you want a better heat connection with the heat sink so the heat is transfered better, and the heat sink (with a fan in it) will hlep to cool the processor.
