3 monitors, 2 graphics cards and 2 clients

So here is my situation, I was running three monitors on a single 270x and run two clients in windowed mode. I decided to add a second 270x to boost performance since it was a bit much for the single card. I know that crossfire doesn't work while running games in windowed mode so I let one card run one of the three monitors on its own and then wanted to have one client running on each card. The problem now is that the eve client wont properly start. The eve launcher says that the game is running and a background process appears in task manager but the client window doesn't appear. Unfortunately, I couldn't find any useful threads less than 5 years old on the topic here.

While trouble shooting, I found that everything appears to work fine if I run it in DX9. Obviously I don't want to keep playing like this though. I also made sure the driver was up to date.

Does DX11 not like this setup? Do I possibly not have something configured properly? Is this a bug?

Any help or insight would be appreciated.
