If I remember correctly the Core i7-7700HQ CPU is locked. Also overclocking on a laptop is not advised. There are some expensive laptops that you can overclock with.

Basically all the components are designed to work a stock operation. Once you try to overclock you can brick the motherboard because it can't handle the higher requirements of the overclock. Temperatures also can brick the board as well over time. It kills battery life.
