    I have these files in the tmp directory which is taking up too much space on my server...
    cpanel.TMP.L6IEKfM7snXVOjsT
    cpanel.TMP.zS3psVI2CBzyRfpd

    Go on, have a guess
    Check whether they're open to a process first:

    lsof | grep /tmp

    I not, and a cPanel upcp is not running, you're probably safe to delete them.
