It should be doing more work as the resolution is higher.

How about the second card?

What are your clocks (real-time!) at the time you get 55*C ?

Your cards aren't getting to idle clocks, that the reason why your cards idle that 'high'. When they're at 51/101/100 there's only .875V applied while at 405 MHz there is .887V applied along with higher clocks. This is the cause of your higher clocks (and also higher power consumption which is bad when idling).

You should close any apps that use your GPU and then check again. (YouTube for example)
