Brands doesn't matter.   LOW DENSITY INTEL Compatible DOES matter.

Crucial is a Dell partner but even they will not allow a return unless you use ram that is specifically stated to work for your model.  You did not say which SIZE you have.

The  3020 comes in several sizes including MICRO which uses Laptop SODIMM's not Desktop Dimms.

Hello Vhaughn,

The OptiPlex 3020 supports up to 8 GB DDR3 memory in 2X4GB configuration and the supported memory speed is 1600MHz. It does not support 1866MHz. Below are the possible memory configurations,

8GB DDR3, 1600MHz, (2 x 4GB)
4GB DDR3, 1600MHz, (2 x 2GB)
4GB DDR3, 1600MHz, (1 x 4GB)
2GB DDR3, 1600MHz, (1 x 2GB)
