If you are not sure what is inside your computer

you can look at this (slightly wierd) interactive diagram to see how things relate to each other in a Centrino notebook. The architecture is similar for a desktop pc. Centrino merely indicates that a specific set of processor, chipset (including ICH) and wireless network are present and certified to work together. Note that in real computers there are not red and blue pipes (veins and arteries?) connecting things together.
