Question Will the Intel Core i3 3240t work with DDR3(not DDR3L)?


First thought = no.

Second thought = what motherboard are you using?

The motherboard's User Manual listing of supported devices: (CPU and RAM) is the key document for answering such questions.

Most likely the User Manual will refer you back to the motherboard's manufacturer's website for more up-to-date information.

What you need are are the applicable QVL's (Qualified Vendor's List) that list the supported devices along with any applicable warnings, caveats, and footnotes. AKA the "fine print".

Details matter and it is also good practice to double-check and otherwise verify support for any component being considered.

A and B may work together. B and C may work together. But if A and C are installed together - no go.
