I have the beast i7 3930k and in the CPU-Z says that they have 6 cores and 12 threads.
Can you explain me what are these numbers :(

This processor has hyper-threading which put simply allows a second path of information to enter the processor and take advantage of leftover resources. On applications that can take advantage of hyper-threading you might see a 10% or more performance increase by having hyper-threading.

You have six physical cpu cores, each or the cores can run two threads of data at the same time.
