sorry it was i7-7700HQ***. Typo from my side. But yes, an above mid-end laptop.Good info. Most laptops won't have this detailed info though so going by comments on amazon I think single channel ram is safer bet for older laptops(say 4th/5th gen or older). Your i7 7700k laptop was surely a rare & high-end model so I think it would have supported many things which lower end laptops might not have at that time.
