Default Re: Fedora 16, GTX 550Ti, random X hangs, "Attempted to yield the CPU..."

That is weird. It definitely crashes more frequently on a 3D game (quake3) for me. I have 9800 GTX+/MSI 790FX-GD70. I noticed many people with 9800 have same problem. You would think this would be a clue for the Nvidia developers to locate the problem. Fedora 16 has several kernels installed on me now . I found it was much worse on the 3.3.x ones than on the 3.1.0 one.

Are you not getting these other errors? Here is the count of NVRM errors in past 2 months:
