I don't see why it shouldn't? Especially and if literally supported by MoBo?
Just make sure you have correct fan that will cope with additional heat - and enough spare power available in PSU (yours should be fine judging by the spec).

According to HP's Specs your current config can only take the i7-7700. That being said, I've noticed that HP doesn't always post every bit of information on the capabilities of their builds online. It may be possible to go with the i7-7700, but I would verify with the manufacturer of your motherboard before purchasing anything. You can get your MOBO's info in a few different ways to look it up (which you may already know).
Via Comman Prompt
Start--> type cmd --> push enter --> in cmd window type, wmic baseboard get manufacturer,product,version and then push enter.
Open up the case and look for the product model number on the motherboard. It can be printed almost anywhere on the board itself, but is typically the largest text that can be found.
Your information should then be displayed. You can Google your motherboards specifications. That will hopefully get you to the right place to lookup what its actually capable of.
For reference, here is the screenshot of the HP provided specs on your model. Good luck!

I concur with TJLP.
The i7 7700k requires a TDP of 91watts.
Your motherboard will not support this processor.
Your motherboard's specs are as follows:
TDP: Up to 65 W
- Socket type: LGA 1151
- Motherboard supports the following processor upgrades:ProcessorTDPIntegrated GraphicsIntel Core i7-7700 (Kabylake) 3.6 GHz Quad Core65 WIntel HD Graphics 630Intel Core i5-7400 (Kabylake) 3.0 GHz Quad Core65 WIntel HD Graphics 630Intel Core i3-7100 (Kabylake) 3.9 GHz Dual Core51 WIntel HD Graphics 630

You are welcome.
Motherboard specs are tight.
An i7 7700k would not initialize if you installed this processor in your motherboard.
The landings and pins will match but your motherboard cannot supply the required CPU power draw.

Hang on chaps, you seemingly confuse two things: PC spec and MoBo spec.
You quote PC spec which merely shows that this PC is not shipped with 7700K fitted, but all other processors depending on the configuration chosen.
Howerver, PC spec shows Odense2 MoBo - which in turn supports it according to its spec:
Based on that I think it's worth trying - however I would not be able to guarantee that it will actually work fine?
Or: do I miss anything here?

Judging by specs for all these chappies (random search via Google):
I think you actually may be fine - or at least that's what HP thinks. 500W is a lot of power, trust me.
