Hi Guys I had the exact same issue but it was fixed by changing SMBIOS to macPro,5.1 as Gigamaxx kindly suggested!
Thanks!

Same problem on a RX 570 Armor 8GB. NoVPAJpeg did the trick perfectly, and I feel more comfortable to use it and stick to my current SMBIOS (18.3). Thanks a lot for all contributions here!

Nothing new here, just sharing my experience. TLDR; I wish I had gone straight for Lilu.kext with NoVPAJpeg.kext.

I first tried turning on internal/integrated graphics in BIOS based on seeing suggestion it would work with my 18,3 SMBIOS setting. After doing so, boot time was many times slower than usual, and for the first time, I saw the purple/pink lines on the display during boot that others have talked about but I hadn't yet experienced. And, quicklook still couldn't preview JPGs.

So I turned off the internal/integrated graphics in BIOS.

Then I tried Lilu.kext with NoVPAJpeg.kext --- I just copied both to EFI volume in /EFI/CLOVER/Other --- and quicklook started working. Oddly, the purple/pink lines still appear briefly during boot. I thought they'd stop appearing after turning internal graphics off, but they didn't. This is mildly disappointing. Mostly I'm very happy to have quicklook working.

You know that you just disabled hardware decoding, right?

SIGH. Now I do, thanks. Bummer. Guess I need to do a few more laps on this.
To fix Preview, either (1) enable IGPU and configure it to be headless or (2) try iMacPro1,1 system definition and disable IGPU. I never tried this with Z270, but I think it should work.

Thank you for the suggestions. After I get a chance to try, I'll report back.

Just confirming that the iMacPro1,1 system definition with IGPU disabled in the BIOS does fix the JPEG Preview/Quick Look problem for my Z270 motherboard based hackintosh. Thanks!
